Dutch/Cape Verdean emcee, singer, songwriter and producer GMB (Gery Mendes Borges, born in 1984). Growing up at the West Kruiskade in Rotterdam, is an original product of the Rotterdam's docks. He started writing English lyrics for the Dutch hip-hop group: "[a=Dutch Conspiracy]" in 2000. It was then that he gained huge respect and grew a big following in the underground rap community. When GMB turned eighteen he also joined Theatre Company: "Rotterdams Lef" crossing the bridge into the world of theatre. In theater GMB developed into the multitalented artist that he is today. Musicality and charisma are the trademarks for his dynamic live shows and his nonstop energy make him a much requested performer for prominent hip hop events such as: "Urban town, Bassline en Chocolate" GMB is a born entertainer who enjoys every minute of being on stage. His debut album: "This is not an album this is a phase" is the product of his record label: "Naked Truth records". GMB: "In this world, where mass media dictate the present culture, I would like to take it back to the creativity and originality of the individual". GMB, inspired by soul, funk, jazz, reggae and music from the republic of Cape Verde; his parents' native country, produced the beats for this debut album, as his alter ego Humaniac. The eighteen tracks tell the story about: love, social injustice and personal struggles of a boy growing up in the streets of Rotterdam. In 2006, after successful performances throughout The Netherlands, sharing the stage with various (inter)national known artists as: Opgezwolle, Duvelduvel, Bahamadia and Common, he receives the Dutch musicians award: "de Grote Prijs van Nederland" in the category hip hop. He also contributed to the Pete Philly & Perquisite album: "Mystery repeats'".
