Nigerian-blooded, Dubai-based rapper GMAC presents ‘Turnt Up,’ his new single produced by Dameon Hughes. The new single comes on the heels of the release of his previous single ‘Arab Swag,’ which details his life in Dubai; where he moved five years ago. GMAC has also been buzzing out in Dubai with his event company UrbanBushMan, which has brought the likes of Nicki Minaj, Beenie Man, Ryan Leslie and Ace Hood to perform.
“I was working on the beat with Dameon Hughes while watching the news on the Mike Brown case and started researching other cases of police brutality on African Americans and I wanted to channel all that emotion into the beat I was vibing to, and ‘Turnt Up’ was born,” said GMAC. “‘Turnt Up’ is a tale of my personal journey in the music industry as an artist in retrospect, the celebration of hiphop as a form of art, the success of millions of black people around the world that hustle everyday to make ends meet, the kids in the projects with dreams to be whatever it is they aspire to be in life and most importantly a tribute to the souls of thousands of victims of police brutality that didn’t even make the headline news because #BlackLivesMatter and it’s up to us to stand up for what is Just – Justice.”
