Big Boogie Wiki Bio
John Lotts was born in Louisiana USA on 4 November 1996 – his zodiac sign is Scorpio, and he holds American nationality.

Early life and education
Big Boogie spent the first ten years of his life in Louisiana, where he was raised by his parents about whom little is known because he respects their privacy; it’s said that his father was a construction worker who occasionally had problems with the authorities, and that his mother was a housewife. The family then moved to Memphis, Tennessee which was a big change for Big Boogie, and which inspired him to start writing his rap songs.
Because he hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most of his fans believe that he’s an only child.
Big Boogie’s family was poor while he was growing up, and he was often bullied by his peers because he had no money to buy new clothes and shoes. He matriculated from a local high school in 2014, and not long after that got into an altercation which led to him spending a month behind bars.
