Recently, Vibrant Doll and RaweMag.org got a chance to catch up with LA hip hop duo U-N-I, who is currently on the Reflection Eternal tour with Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek. U-N-I, made up of members Yonas & Thurzday, are one of our favorites, and we love their music. Amazing individuals, and together their chemistry is what makes up U-N-I. I have posted about them before on VDOLL, but this time – they got the spotlight! I first discovered U-N-I from a pretty popular hip hop blog by the name of 2dopeboyz.com. (I think that’s where I find most of my artists!) and I been amazed ever since. They had a mixtape, “The Love Supreme” available for download on the right hand column of the website, and I was like “hmm, let me give this a listen and see what they are all about.” and BAM! -could listen to that mixtape straight through, without having to fast forward. In my book, if you can listen to an album or mixtape without having to skip a song, then that just means that the album is BOMB. U-N-I’s music is fun, entertaining, and clever. While making songs that you can bump in your car and dance to, they also make music that makes you think- and tells a story. They are entertaining as HECK on stage. They know how to put on a show. If you weren’t a U-N-I fan before seeing them perform, by the time they get done with you, you’ll be a fan. I remember when I saw them touring with Warren G, a girl next to me had no clue who they were, and after they performed, she was really digging them. From touring with huge names like Warren G, Talib Kweli, and Drake, to having videos on MTV… U-N-I is really doing big things. We will be seeing them all over the place soon. I can feel it. Check out our interview below, and some flicks we shot after the interview!
Had a lot of fun interviewing them! They are extremely nice and very down to earth. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to make it to their show after wards, but we had a great time hanging out with them.
