Songfacts®:

  • Get Money Entertainment is an Indie Record Label/Promotion Team based in Atlanta, which has been around since early 2007, and their first signing was a young Atlanta rapper called Roscoe Dash, formally known as "Atl." In November 2008 Roscoe Dash released his mixtape entitled, Gettin 2 Da Money. By this time Get Money Entertainment had grown and become well known in their home city. CEO Young K then introduced Roscoe Dash to several of his business associates including Soulja Boy Tellem and in April 2009 the rapper began to record at the well known Arrogant Music Studios. One of the songs he laid down was the original version of this number, which included two verses by a southern rap group known as, Travis Porter.
    In September 2009 the track was released on Travis Porter's mixtape, Im A Diffrenter 2 credited to Travis Porter ft. Atl & Yt. The song began to take off locally but fans of the track thought it was Travis Porter's song rather than Roscoe Dash's. In response to this Dash took out Travis Porter's contribution replacing their verses with some by Soulja Boy Tellem. When the new version was released it became the #1 song in Atlanta within a couple weeks of coming out. A record label bidding war for his signature ensued and Young K was flooded with emails and phone calls from many of the major companies. Roscoe Dash eventually decided to settle for an album deal with Def Jam Records and this song was released as his first single.
  • Soulja Boy openly lobbied via Twitter to appear on this track. He told MTV News that when he first heard this song, "it reminded me of myself. I was like, 'That sounds like a 'Turn My Swag On' times 10. Man, I gotta get on that.'"
  • Dash explained to MTV News: "The definition of 'All the Way Turnt Up' is a new age crunk - a 2010 crunk. I'm not afraid to be different, or do things other people would be afraid to do or do different because they're afraid of what somebody else might say. I don't have that thought process."
  • Roscoe Dash was born Jeffrey Johnson Jr and his stage surname was inspired by the fastest of The Incredibles.
  • Ludacris recorded a version of this cut for his mixtape, The Conjure Mixtape: A Hustler's Spirit, which was released to promote his brand of cognac. The rapper explained about his takeover of Roscoe Dash's song to MTV News: "The whole record is talking about being yourself, turning your music up as loud as hell and not caring what anybody had to say. It's about you being too loud. Sometimes you get tickets for disturbing the peace. When you see a cop, you have to turn it down."
