Inglewood rap duo U-N-I, “Thurzday” (Yannick Koffi) and “YO” (Yonas Michael), are the talk of the Internet and guiding hip-hop’s path in L.A. by juxtaposing music with customized fashion. The two MCs have loaded up on accolades over the past two years. They were awarded “Best Breakout LA Artist” at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards and have been the subject of positive features in The Source Magazine, XXL, LA Times, and VIBE to name just a few.
“Green Label Sound is giving us a stepping stool into the next league with an official team behind us,” remarked Thurzday of U-N-I. “Until now we have been doing everything independently and we can only expect greater things with this opportunity and the support of Green Label Sound.”
Green Label Sound’s earlier releases have featured a diverse roster of talented artists, including Brooklyn-breakouts Matt and Kim, Chicago rap duo The Cool Kids, former touring member of MGMT and founding member of The Whigs Kuroma, as well as the collaboration from production duo Flosstradamus and Chairlifts’ Caroline Polachek
