The music industry has produced a lot of talent and stars from across the globe. It welcomes all who have something unique to give, irrespective of gender, race or age. Jtti is a rising star on the music scene and is already carving a niche for himself despite his youth.
Born December 19, 2005, in Peekskill, New York, John Troia, known in music circles as Jtti, is an up-and-coming songwriter and musical artist of Puerto Rican and Sicilian descent. Initially, his family lived in the Bronx in New York; however, his early years were spent moving from place to place, mainly within the New York district.
Jtti began dealing with obstacles and challenges very early on. His family persistently struggled with poverty, and the constant relocating made it challenging to have any meaningful stability in his life. Coupled with this, he grew up with an absent father and quickly learned to develop a thick skin and fend for himself. Jtti openly embraces the pain of his upbringing with the rising star stating that all the battles he has faced have only served as motivation to keep pushing and to one day lift his family out of their financial challenges.
The one bright spark throughout Jtti’s journey has always been music. He discovered that he had a flair for music and devoted himself to it, listening to industry greats and honing his skills and talent until he eventually began writing his own songs and gaining popularity locally.
Music offered the young artist solace and an outlet in the middle of all other uncertainty, and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands. Jtti’s most acclaimed musical performance is for his single, “Rewind,” which has amassed over 400,000 streams since its first release. Some of his other singles include “Perspective,” “My Vibe,” “Elevate,” “LMA,” and “Like That” and are available on all major music streaming platforms.
Jtti displays considerable musical versatility for one relatively young. He has been observed to be comfortable with sounds that pack a lot of power and equally soothing sounds. It is getting more evident by the day that he possesses the raw talent and finesse to grow into a significant figure in the Hip hop and Rap genre. He credits artists like T.I., J Cole, and Jay-Z as having a strong influence on Jtti’s lifestyle both in and out of the studio.
Jtti has his goals set on the very top of the industry, and this has fueled his drive throughout the period he was unrecognized and enabled him to push past naysayers and stay consistent. It is pretty common to see music artists exhibiting flashy and fast lifestyles at the slightest whiff of success. However, Jtti remains grounded and keeps on putting in the work to cement his place in the industry and be a gamechanger. The young artist firmly believes that with hard work and resilience, any dream is achievable. In his words, “You can do anything that you put your mind to. Don’t let anyone stop you or tell you that you can’t.”
In the coming years, Jtti hopes to leave a legacy that will inspire other young artists to walk the same path to unleash their talent and share their gifts with the world. He also hopes to have multiple singles topping the Billboard charts and become one of the household names in music.
