Shotta G was born and raised in a Gritty inner-city community in East Kingston, Jamaica called Bower Banks. He grew up listening to many reggae and dancehall acts such as Bob Marley, Beenie Man, Beres Hammond, and Shabba Ranks. He then started to pen his own dancehall lyrics at the age of 10 and performed at numerous talent shows and other local showcase.
After Graduating High School, Shotta G won a scholarship to play soccer at the collegiate level. He knew this was going to be his chance to show off his hip hop skills and pursue his dreams of being a professional recording artist in the States. Shotta G has been living in the states for a while now and has been located between Saint Louis, New York, and most recently San Diego.
