Before riding high on success and becoming a change agent for many individuals, businesses, and musicians, Jesse Forte has faced his fair share of struggles. At point one point of his life, he was homeless and using music as an escape and meal ticket, by performing on the streets, and subways. Music has been an inseparable part of his life, whether he was playing division 1 football, traveling, or working up his entrepreneurial spirits.
During his college years, Jesse started rapping in the locker room and cafeteria, doing rap battles with his friends. He went onto perform in Puerto Rico, and India before landing in New York, where he found himself homeless and performing music for survival. Eventually, he moved back to Arizona to live with his grandmother and arranged make-shift recording equipment to make music. Fast forward to the present day, he recently launched a 6 song EP that captures the essence of his gritty journey. Taking his listeners from 0 to over 140,000 monthly and over 350,000 streams in less than 2 months.
Sending a message to his music fans and all readers, Jesse says, “I appreciate you and if I inspire you along the way, great! My job is to be a tool so that one day you can gather the inspiration necessary for you to live your dreams. It’s possible for all of us, we just need to do the work.”
