Steve grew up in New York and became interested in the world of music production at a young age. He started pursuing it and eventually landed a job with record executive Benny Medina, who is known for working with several high-profile artists.
It was during this period that he met and befriended rapper Will Smith, who was relatively unknown at the time. He helped him create a few songs and was one of his supporters when offers for an acting career came. He helped with the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” show, one of his first forays into creating something for television.
The sitcom aired on NBC from 1990 to 1996 and starred Will Smith portraying a fictionalized version of himself living in the wealthy neighborhood of Bel-Air. His character moved there after getting into a fight in West Philadelphia, prompting his parents to send him elsewhere to live with relatives.

He also worked in the movie “That Championship” which didn’t get much attention.
He also continued to work in the music industry and became part of Primary Wave Entertainment in the music talent management department. The company is known for its presence around the world and has rights to many popular artists, including Nirvana, Aerosmith and Courtney Love. In 2016, it became one of the largest independent publishers in the US, with over 15,000 issues in their inventory. In recent years it has been responsible for major investments in the music industry and the creation of a large music fund for publishing classics, while also looking for new talent.
Some of their recent partnerships include Air Supply, Whitney Houston, Culture Club, and DJ White Shadow, who is known for his work with Lady Gaga.
Wife – Tamron Hall
Tamron Hall began her journalism career in the late 1980s when she enrolled at Temple University to complete her undergraduate degree. After graduating four years later, she moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area where she was first offered a job as part of KBTX. She worked primarily as a general assignment reporter for two years, before moving to KTVT in the same area, where she served in the same capacity.
After four years, she moved to Chicago, Illinois where she joined the WFLD-TV team. She had a much greater responsibility this time, presenting a three-hour morning program and doing other reports as well. She was very invested in her job there, as she was born in Chicago, and was there to cover the Illinois Amtrak accidents. She served on the station for ten years before being offered a job with the national news network MSNBC, which would also mean work for her as part of NBC News. She quickly gained attention in her first year with the company, as she was one of the first to interview Barack Obama before his declaration for presidential candidacy in 2008.
After serving primarily as a replacement on the show “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” Hall landed her first hosting project on “The Big Picture,” joining David Shuster during its one-year run. This led to her next project “News Nation with Tamron Hall”, which covered national and international news during weekday afternoons. In the show, she covered several notable events such as the death of Osama Bin Laden and the effect of Hurricane Isaac.
After starring in that show for three years, she joined the Investigation Discovery team and got the show “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall”. Each episode of the show features a crime scene with experts uncovering the details of each case. One of her last jobs with the network was “The Today Show”, in which she was the co-anchor of the program’s third hour, making her the first African-American to be featured on the show in this way. In 2017, she canceled her contract after NBC decided to reduce her role in the show. She has since signed a new deal with Disney-ABC where she hosts the talk show “Tamron Hall” which airs on most of the ABC stations in the US.
Steve married Tamron Hall in 2019 after dating for a few years. Shortly after their wedding, she announced she was pregnant, and they had a child sometime in the middle of the year. The family lives in Harlem and has largely stayed out of the limelight. Outside of work, the couple supports various charities, particularly movements against domestic violence, as Hall’s late sister was murdered. The crime remains unsolved, although it was likely the result of abuse as she was known to be a victim of several domestic violence incidents in the past.
