Casper

Casper (born Terry Marshall) was a male DJ\rapper from the 80's. Not much information is given about him, but he was signed to AVI Records.
In 1980, Casper released the single, "Groovy Ghost Show Part I" which peaked at #86 on Billboard's Hot Soul Singles chart, staying on the chart for 4 weeks. It's known as the first rap song to come out of Chicago.
Eleven years later, Casper's last single, "Adrenalin\War of Words" was released on Capitol Records in 1991, but didn't chart.

After that, it seems as if Casper faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from him since.
