About Jacob Latimore
While he’s perhaps best known for his role on the Showtime series The Chi, Jacob Latimore has been singing pop and R&B since he was a young Radio Disney star in the mid-’00s.
• Latimore released his first single, “Best Friend,” in 2005, shortly after moving from his hometown of Milwaukee to Atlanta to pursue his career.
• He released a string of mixtapes (starting with 2009’s I Am The Future) and continued singing while picking up acting gigs in TV and film.
