Mostly known for being a contestant on the first season of The X Factor USA in 2011. His mentor was L.A. Reid, the mentor for the boys. Astro was seventh place in the competition. After his appearance on The X Factor, he starred in an episode of Person of Interest.

Born in Brooklyn, New York. There, he lived in a single parent household with his Jamaican mother and younger sister. He began rapping professionally at the age of ten when his mother promised him studio time if he began to do better in school. He soon released his first single, "Stop Looking at My Moms" and created his first mixtape "B.O.A. (Birth of Astro)." He later started composing instrumentals of his own that pertained to the hip hop music genre.

Some of his musical influences include Marvin Gaye, Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder, Biggie Smalls, Boyz II Men, Mary J. Blige, Fu-Schnickens, Tupac Shakur, Nas, and other artists from the 80s and 90's time period. His music is also inspired by the notable film director and fellow Brooklynite Spike Lee.

At the age of 14, "Astro" went to audition for the X-Factor. For his audition, he performed "Stop Looking At My Moms" and stole America's attention by becoming one of the few rappers to perform on such a show. He gained four yeses and proceeded on and into the top seven before getting eliminated.
