Proud to help announce the first ever reissue of the highly slept-on release from The UN, the group consisting of Roc Marciano, Dino Brave, Mike Raw, and Laku. “UN Or U Out” was initially released 10 years ago on Carson Daly’s short lived 456 Entertainment imprint and will see an official release on CD/2xLP/Digital/Cassette via Fat Beats / Frozen Files on April 15th.
The UN first emerged on Pete Rock’s classic 2001 “Petestrumentals” album, a primarily all-instrumental release minus two tracks – “Nothing Lesser” and “Cake” both featuring vocals by The UN. Roc Marciano had already established himself as a member of Busta Rhymes’ Flipmode Squad but The UN’s introduction on “Petestrumentals” left fans itching for more music from the relatively unknown group.
Pete Rock continued to work with The UN producing two songs on “UN Or U Out” including “Game of Death (G.O.D.)” which we are happy to share today.
Stay tuned for more info on a special edition color vinyl release for Record Store Day 2014.
