Despite winning the MTV VMA award for “Best Breakout LA Artist,” and being one of the more acclaimed groups featured in the Booth, Inglewood duo U-N-I remain unsigned. It does not appear, however, that will be the case for much longer; Thurzday and Y-O are both set to appear on Hypebeast and Hypetrak Magazines’ new mixtape (hosted by DJ Mick Boogie and producer Judah), Hype Club. This new mixtape record finds the duo on a Hollywood Hiatus—cruising in a cool convertible, hollering at all the celebrity chicks, and brushing off all the haters with a thumbs-up. Producer Ro Bud, who samples New Edition’s Cool It Now off the top, retains the melody for his synth-heavy beat. While most of U-N-I’s music has been acclaimed, could Hollywood Hiatus (Cool It Now) be what finally rockets them to semi-stardom? Stay tuned…
