As we begin the New Year, many people take time out to reflect on how much they have accomplished towards their goals. OGG (Originality Gains Greatness) is a tight-knit crew consisting of creative talents of all types: videographers, rappers, hosts and DJ’s. The group was created in March of 2014 and quickly became the talk of Atlanta after OG Maco’s “U Guessed It” video went viral. Since then, OG Maco, Losa, Kushy, Cedd, Theo Ferragamo, Hombre, DJ Bluetooth and other members of the crew have been working hard to make a long lasting imprint on the music scene.
In a matter of months, OG Maco has performed in various states, been featured in magazines as a rising artist to lookout for, and interviewed by some of the top radio stations and outlets in the music industry. For the New Year, OG Maco gave back to the people that contributed to his ongoing success and gave him the extra push to continue his journey.
On January 1st, OG Maco curated a free show in Atlanta for fans of all ages as a thank you for their continuous support. #ANOGMACONEWYEAR was a collaborative effort of OGG and other artists to showcase their talent and introduce fans to what they have coming up for 2015. T Bo from OGG hosted the event, which featured DJ sets from GuyATL and OG Maco’s official DJ, OG Bluetooth and surprise performances by other artists from Atlanta.
Hundreds of people came out to the dim lit warehouse with copies of Maco’s self titled EP ready to party like rockstars. Members of Quality Control Music showed support to their newest signee as well as local producers and artists like Wara, Ducko McFli and ManManSavage. Everyone performed their songs off stage while the fans fed off the energy exuded from each artist.
OG Maco got the crowd ready for Theo Ferragamo and the first lady of OGG, Losa, who are next up in the crew. Losa blew the crowd away with her style and ruthless lyrics in her song, “Figures” and Theo performed a banger with rising ATL artist, Jerz titled “Same Sh*t”. The audience was very enthused and excited when Losa announced her upcoming project titled Sophisticated Ignorance due to release in 2015.
Along with surprise announcements from the OGG crew, Hombre, Johnny Cinco, Lucci, and High Society’s TheCoolIsMac also did special guests performances. The raw energy of the fans in the crowd was undeniable. As a gift to the fans, Maco decided to shoot the video for one of the standout tracks from OG Maco, titled “F*ckEmx3.” Everyone was ecstatic. Fans were rushing to the forefront to be featured in the video with one of their favorite artists.
#ANOGMACONEWYEAR was an event strictly for the people that have been a huge part of OG Maco’s success. He received an abundance of love from the fans, his OGG crew, label mates and other artists form Atlanta. The amount of genuine support that was spread throughout the room was undeniable. Be on the lookout for OG Maco’s “F*ckEmx3” video featuring his fans releasing soon. As the year of 2015 kicks off, OGG is plotting and planning on how to take the year by storm!
