Artist Spotlight - U-N-I

The West Coast hasn't had a lot of new artists hit the mainstream in a while. Most of the new cats (Glasses Malone, Bishop Lamont, etc.) haven't crossed over just yet. I'm hoping that U-N-I will reverse that trend. The group consists of members Thurzday and Y-O and they released their debut album Fried Chicken & Watermelon in 2007. Most of the music I've heard from them has been really good. They use a lot of smooth beats that sound great on the highway and they can both spit. I was pleasantly surprised to hear a New Edition sample on the aptly titled, Cool It Now. They are currently working on their next album, A Love Supreme, which should showcase the talent of the group.
