"Cold Water Flows," Turnup's latest visual, showcases the city of Baltimore while telling the tale of a lover scorned! In it, you can see the lyrical potential of this up and comer. In addition to the music, Turnup creates apparel based around the idea that Originality Matters and offers unique garments through his 1 of 1 Club subscription service.
