Juan Ramos, better known by his stage name Juan Gotti, is an American rapper of Mexican descent, and member of Dope House Records.[1][2] He raps in both Spanish and English.[3] Billboard has called him "one of the pioneers of the West Coast Latin rap movement".[4]

Juan Ramos was born in Hillsboro, Texas and raised in Houston. He later moved to San Antonio.[5] Gotti combines regional Norteño and Ranchero music with hip hop to create his signature sound.[1] Some of Gotti's music was recorded in an attempt to promote peace between rival gangs, as the result of his change of attitude after being released from prison.[1]

His album No Sett Trippin was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award in 2004.[6] In 2005, his follow-up album John Ghetto debuted at #11 on Billboard's Latin Rhythm Charts, as well as #46 under the Top Latin Albums category.[7] He has also received multiple nominations for Texas Latin Rap Awards,[8] including a win for Artist of the Year in 2005.[9]
