Prince George, Virginia born and raised, Jacob Lotto is a hip hop artist and songwriter. Residing in a hometown that's not noted for having a musical background, Jacob was inspired by the early 90's hip hop era from sneaking albums and numerous mixtapes from his older brother. Also spending several summers in New Jersey visiting his aunt, which was stationed in the Army at the time played a influential part in Jacob's life as far as hip hop, fashion, and a outlook on lifestyle. Working with Virginia based artist Trew Music, Jacob began pursing his career in music at the age of 16. Jacob was first inspired by the production of songs which led to a short lived dream in making beats but then was influenced by peers to begin writing which became his new hobby. Jacob recalls " Writing my first verse I never knew what type of reaction I would get but seeing everyone was diggin it. I decided to keep going".
Throughout Jacob's career, he has done several shows with Trew Music throughout different places such as Orlando, North Carolina, Maryland, Washington DC, Kentucky, California, and Richmond Va. With the release of several compilation mixtapes under Inner Circle Music Group, he has been creating a buzz through his music. Also noted for the release of his first music video entitled "International Playa" in 2004 and song that became a favorite among many "Melinda" which was also a ringtone. Jacob continues to purse his career in music with his solo debut mixtape which was released in 2014 called "Smart Money on Me".
Now with his new love for different genres of music has lead Jacob to become more than just a hip hop artist. Also being around new pop artist and pop/rock bands has inspired him to not only make hip hop music but just make good music in general no matter the genre of it. Jacob Lotto is looking forward to becoming a fresh new face worldwide in music and continue with his success.
