360Fresh: GMac ft Shank – One For The Road

share on:
Dubai based nigerian artiste Gmac features Shank on his 1st single and the joint burns.

Press Release:

In a game flooded with same sounding acts OD’ed on confidence  and little much else, rapper  Gmac aka Balogun lehin swag aka Leave my tooth brush in her bathroom aka Gidiboi hustler is carving his own lane and bringing a much needed freshness to an otherwise crowded music scene. Music is different things to different people. For some it’s a play thing, to be fiddled with during free time and leisure. For others, it is merely an outlet for finding expression. For Gmac (born George Ayinde) however, music has always been a passion and a dream: one he has gone through his fair share of trials and tribulations to be able to actualize now.

I recorded my first song in 2003’, the confident rapper recounts ‘but my dad made sure that never got out’, putting a twist to an otherwise uncomplicated life story.  Born into an affluent family, Daddy Gmac didn’t feel music was the way to go for his first son. But instead of deterring the dream, it only fueled his scion’s passion.’ Since I didn’t get the support I wanted, I dropped out of University and started working with the Soundcity as a project manager and a producer for Spice TV (arms of the media behemoth run by Tajuddeen Adepetu) while it was still in its development phase. This kept me close to the music scene and the artists. I got to know a lot of cats but I yearned for my chance to hit that limelight

That chance has come eight years later in the form of “One for the road” featuring Soundboy of choice, Shank. Over a slow burning beat, Gmac reminisces over a love lost while Shank plays crooner singing ‘Can I hit that one more time’ with an intensity that almost feels real. The now graduate of filmmaking, Dubai based Gmac is charting his way to the top on his label Kickback aka Syrup music and from hearing him tell it you get the feeling he won’t stop till he has reached his goals. ‘I see myself beating standards and records set by those before me. I am on a mission to actualize my dreams and actualize them I will’ 

Yup! Get familiar!
