On the heels of news that Trinidad and Tobago music group Millionaire Family has struck quite an incredible deal with foreign record label, Millionaires Records and Millionaire Inc., there is now news that another young T&T artiste will be aligned to the US and Canada based music entity. A.C.M- an acronym that stands for Automatic Cash Machine is the newest artiste to be discovered out of Trinidad and Tobago- the newest artiste to be signed to Millionaires Records/ Millionaires Inc./CVR Entertainment Affairs Inc.
Born in T&T, the 26- year- old rapper moved to New York at the age of 10 and eventually moved back to Trinidad in 2009 where he has since settled down. On the island that is known best for its carnival atmosphere, A.C.M has managed to hone his craft and is equipped with the skills of a true rap artiste- being dubbed one of the best rappers on the island.
Set to release his first mix tape in May, A.C.M whose real name is Mario Hope is also gearing up for the release of a video, which will be shot in T&T in the coming weeks. His first single, Quickie was remixed with R&B star, Miguel who is best known for his single, Sure Thing which peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop songs chart shortly after its release.
According to Millionaires Records representatives, the mixtape will be called, Streets or Nothing and will consist of 14 tracks plus one bonus single. “The mixtape will be sent out to all DJs in Trinidad and Tobago, US, Canada and the UK,” said Richard Hope- CEO of the music group. He said Quickie will be released in Trinidad very soon and the team is very optimistic when it comes to the embrace it will receive among DJs on the island. “A.C.M will also be releasing four videos before the end of the year so we’re just saying people need to watch out for this kid- he’s nice on the mic and he’s gonna blow up on the rap scene,” said Hope.
Millionaires Records and CVR Entertainment Affairs Inc, is well known for its involvement in the promotion of Caribbean culture and artistes from across the hemisphere, overseas. In 2012, their aim is consistent to this movement to introduce artistes from the developing islands of the Caribbean to record labels and record execs in the US, UK and Canada.
