Thug Famous makes a name
Thug Famous

Thug Famous is generating a buzz with Bad Gal, his latest single.

Released August 1, Bad Gal features Jahvel and is produced by Mad Dawg Entertainment.

"The song is just highlighting that some girls need a thug in their lives. Women have always been attracted to bad boys, ah just so the thing set," said Thug Famous, whose given name is Demoy Plant.

"I am happy with the current direction of my career. I am fully focused on doing the work needed to eventually become one of the greats in the business. Yes, it takes time, but nothing worth having comes easy," Thug Famous continued.

In 2018 findings, social anthropologist Dr Herbert Gayle tracked the 'Reasons Why Young Women Die'.

"It may be surprising to some that women are playing serious roles in the planning of violence. We found that eight per cent are involved in this fashion. They are behind the scenes and have been effective," Gayle said during the presentation to launch the research findings.

Thug Famous hails from the inner-city community of Grant's Pen in St Andrew.

According to the principals of Mad Dawg Entertainment, responsible for guiding the artiste's professional career, the song is surpassing early expectations.

"We released the single without any promotional push because we're aware Thug Famous, though a relative newcomer to the scene, has a lot of core support in the streets. Hence, this was just an exercise to measure his impact, and he is winning right now," said Jason Senior, a representative of Mad Dawg Entertainment.
