Nakota Witter: An Introduction
Nakota Witter | 30 | Net Worth: $10 million
𝑁𝑎𝑘𝑜𝑡𝑎 𝐺𝑟𝑎𝘩𝑎𝑚 𝑊𝑖𝑡𝑡𝑒𝑟 was born at the Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital on April 22, 1990, to his parents, Raymond and Angela Witter. He grew up in a small village called Put-In-Bay located on South Bass Island in Lake Erie. His parents were very hands-off when it came to parenting. His father owned his own lucrative fishing charter business while his mother was an office assistant at a hair salon. Growing up as an only child, he spent many days out of the house playing with kids in his village until late at night. While he knew that his parents loved him, he basically raised himself. At a young age, Witter was able to pick up on street smarts from the local kids that he hung around with.
Throughout the rest of his childhood and adolescence, things drastically changed for young Wilde. His mother left when Nakota was 12 to be with a man that she met. The was on the island for vacation and offered Angela promises of a better life, and she fell head over heels. A few months after she left, she served Raymond with divorce papers. It was now just the two of them - Raymond and Nakota. Amidst the tragedy of his mother leaving, the upside that came out of it was that father and son formed a close-knit bond.
In the middle of high school, Witter excelled when it came to drawing and making music. At the age of 15, he became an apprentice at Voodoo Monkey Tattoo. During his sophomore year of high school, Witter decided to complete his GED to the dismay of his father and pursue music. He even gave up his apprenticeship and abandoned his impressive portfolio to pursue a dream that may or may not happen. At 16, he released his first mixtape, “Stamp of Approval” (2006), and helped his reputation and profile to grow, allowing him to perform at venues outside of Put-In-Pay. His stage name “Machine Gun Kelly”, was coined by fans as they were impressed with his swift delivery in regards to rap.
In April of 2011, after five years of pursuing his dream, Witter was signed to an independent label by the name of Pinnacle Music Group. PMG not only gave him full artistic freedom, but it finally allowed him to have a larger audience to divulge his music too. Later in 2012, he released his first album, “Lace Up” followed by his second album “General Admission” in 2015. His third album “Bloom” was released in May of 2017. His fourth album, “Hotel Diablo” was released two years later in 2019. At last, his most recent album “Tickets to My Downfall” was released in September of 2020. He still continues to climb music’s everlasting mountain.
Despite all of the success that he received in his career, he never really got over the fact that his mother left him so young. What made matters worse is that he lost his father in July of 2020. The pain of losing both of his parents left a void in his heart that money, drugs, alcohol, women, and fame couldn’t fill no matter how hard he tried.
Nakota is described by his friends as an outgoing and friendly male - an exceptionally outgoing individual. The loss of his parents have given him a constant yearning for companionship and an intense dread of being alone. He tosses himself into social situations and tries his best to steer clear of isolation. His eagerness and excitement often bring him to being overly noisy around other people. He is rather awkward around those he doesn’t know, to the point that some might call him socially awkward. Despite Nakota being socially inept, he yearns for companionship, and often to make a fool of himself in his eagerness to impress others and make good of them.

While music is his passion, Nakota would love to open his very own record label. In the music industry, it's hard to find labels that value artists and encourage them to embrace their individuality. Instead, most labels these days take a good artist and tries to morph them into their own idea of what a successful artist should be. When he does open his own label, he vows to let his clients be whoever they want to be.
