OG Maco Tells The True Story On How “U Guessed It” Went Viral

OG Maco drops his brand of wisdom and a LaunchDon world premiere of his new single "Hop In the Coupe", Sign Up Below

Sporting a designer black eye patch, blonde hair and decked in a bulletproof vest, OG Maco grudging admits “Everybody can’t be wrong…That’s my burden.”

Explaining that mass appeal hinges off of just that – the masses – and Maco admits that he faces an uphill battle when it comes to getting an honest chance. However, his unique flow, signature sense of style and an old-soul perspective on life has him firmly seated on a path to winning everybody over.

Emerging as a viral star in 2014, OG Maco touches on how his first single, “U Guessed It”, propelled him to stardom virtually overnight, in an exclusive interview on The LaunchDon Podcast, with hosts Nemo & Rudy.

“The common story is that “U Guessed It” (became notorious) from Vine…But why hasn’t anyone asked ‘how did it ever get to Vine?’…if I never had a Vine account?” posited the Atlanta native.

“In fact, it was J.Cole that took ‘U Guessed It’ to New York and said ‘This is it, this is next’” said OG Maco. “He told the New York Giants that, the Jets that, he told Wiz (Khalifa) that, he told even Nas that.”

From there OGG (his unofficial nickname) recounts that he had an eager cast of hip-hop royalty assembled Drake’s Calabasas home, awaiting the delivery of the song’s music video to post on social media themselves.

Having checked off tour stops from London to Beijing, there’s no denying OG Maco’s swagger is capturing the masses on a global level.

Among Maco’s artistic arsenal is his unrivaled fashion sense. Bold apparel choices and eye-catching hair do’s keep the camera’s lens firmly focused on this emerging star. In fact, OG Maco is now apart of the Givenchy team as Marketing Strategist.

Musically, his approach transcends genres. OG Maco’s talents have been recognized by a wide range of industry heavy-hitters. Beck, Fall-Out Boy as well as EDM giants Skrillex, DJ Snake and Diplo have tapped Maco to collaborate on their projects.

Now he believes it’s time for him to stand on his own two feet and claim what is rightfully his.

Listen to OG Maco describe what fuels his creative fire, why he believes his album deserves a Grammy and for the first time, speak publicly about his recent, tragic car-accident that claimed his right eye in the latest edition of The LaunchDon Podcast.
