What is your real name? Jon Purl

How many aliases do you have and what are they?  GhOsT is the only one.

How old are you? 23

Where were you born? St. Louis, MO

When did you start doing music? Well that's a crazy story in and of itself.  I started doing music when ~Jay asked me to be the drummer in his band "Screw ~ N ~ Bolt" and seeing as though we didn't play any musical instruments, that didn't last very long.  That was about 2000 or so.  From there we realized we were better in the urban / hip hop / r&b scene.  

Why did you decide to pursue a career in music? Because it's the only thing I love doing, the only time I'm really happy.

What give you the motivation to write the way you do? Most of my motivation and inspiration comes from past relationships or experiences I've had.

Do you ever just set up a track and freestyle a verse? Yeah, and the gross number of freestyle songs we have will prove it.

Who do you most like working with? I will work with anybody but I most like working with family..

Who's your favorite lyricist? Me, I'm so fyre. But actually I don't really have a favorite, but if I had to choose it'd be Tech N9ne

Who's your favorite producer? Rob the Viking.

What's your favorite album? Anything from Tech N9ne or Twista

What's your favorite song? I don't ever have a favorite, it changes so much.

What other genres or artists from other genres have influence on you? Old school stuff, new age stuff, techno. Anything gives me inspiration, but most of the time it is life that gives me inspiration.

What artists have you performed with? ~Jay, Blackie Chan, Psychic Child, Tre, Da Hole 9, X-Tac, and many others

What's your favorite Singing Style? Me.  I do me.  I sing how the beat tells me to sing. You can pretty much guarantee that my style won't be the same on every track.

What's your favorite song from Things Have Changed? Probably Money Now because it was one of my favorite verses on the cd.

Favorite Song from The Backlash Mixtape?  I love Another level, it's just a classic.  That and my verse is so hot.

What projects are you currently working on? What aren't we working on, we're always working on something.

What is the best thing about making music on your own? The freedom to express who you are, and what you want to say.  Also, to kind of clue in everyone else who maybe doesn't know you so well on how you feel and let them in on you, who you really are.

What do you hope to accomplish in the industry?  Change the game.  Bring the music back to the lyrics and life other than "bling".

What is it like in the industry, I mean having anything you need at your disposal?  Well I'm not really in the industry yet and I don't really have anything at my disposal but having a studio there at all times is kind of nice.

Have you ever wanted to put someone on track with you, is it hard to get them on track with you?  Yeah all kind of people, but we don't really have the funds to do that... yet.

Who do you hope to work with in the future? I'd love to work with Tech N9ne, Twista, all of Bone, Atmosphere, Kano, Linkin Park, all kinds of people.

What would it take for you to get on one of my tracks or for me to get on one of yours? You could hit me up on here, aim (babybluebear39), drop me a line on myspace (www.myspace.com/ghost314) or (www.myspace.com/ghostof3be), you should always shoot me and email ghost@3beonline.com.

What advice would you give to those just now trying to get into the industry? Don't rely on anyone but yourself, because it's your future.

Anything else you want to say? (Shout-outs, quote, etc):  Yeah much love to my family.  But to all those people who don't think we can make it ex's, relatives, and such FUCK YOU!
