Hey this is World Famous G-MACK. I’m a DJ and marketing consultant based in Atlanta, Georgia. I was born in Jamaica, but grew up in the Bronx. I moved to Atlanta after receiving a scholarship to Morehouse College. In school I helped to promote college parties as a way to get in free. That led to opportunities to market music, artists and various events going on throughout the city. A friend of mine started djing while on campus and would allow me to open up for him at events. As I continued to practice, my networking ability also allowed me to build relationships that helped me to secure gigs in the market. In time, I was able to move from college parties to mainstream Atlanta nightlife.
The funny thing is that when I first got to Atlanta, I wasn’t particularly interested in the music industry. I had done internships in corporate America every summer since 9th grade. However, the promotional experiences I had sparked a fire that I didn’t know existed until it was already ignited. Growing up in New York City in the 90’s I had always loved music, now was my opportunity to combine what I do with something I appreciated.
