A lil' about Le Tito
Jose Mario Montalvo, better known by his stage name LE TITO, is a writer, rapper and singer, and one of the most anticipated artists to emerge in the hip hop game today. The son of immigrant parents who fled El Salvador for Los Angeles during the Reagan years, young Tito, his older brother and sister were raised in humble homes between Montreal and L.A. From a young age, he was influenced musically by the bilingual and cultural diversity of Montreal as well as Los Angeles, where he spent his summers. LE TITO was influenced by his older brother as well, who introduced him to things like repertoire film, hip hop, latin music, rock and jazz. As he got older, he explored different genres and developed a large knowledge of music.
After an injury to his shoulder compromised the promising boxing career he had worked towards since the age of 8, Tito dove headfirst into music. By the age of twenty, Tito completed his first song, That Day, which he wrote to clear his mind during a situation he was going through with his girlfriend. After hearing the song, his brother pushed him to continue writing, which he did, eventually compiling a ton of lyrics and rhymes. Eventually Tito came to the attention of Koudjo, a world-class producer who has worked with artists like Styles P and French rapper Booba, to name but a few. Both talents soon started working together alongside hot young producer D Fresh, with whom Tito bonded instantly.
LE TITO is currently working on his debut mixtape EP, doing shows across North America, and is set to release his debut video.
