U.G – Dubs Of The Mad Skint And British
It’s rare you hear an artist tackle issues nowadays in the controlled environment the music industry has become at the top level, but this artist seems to be turning heads and doing it completely independent of a hype machine or label without holding back on content or artistry.
U.G is a Songwriter/Singer/Rapper and Producer from Leicester in the East Midland’s United Kingdom. U.G’s style is authentically English and even with the hard lyrical content and subject matter has the potential to fully cross over into the mainstream despite his unwavering underground nature. He has now become a commodity in the U.K and soon to be the world due to his amazingly original articulate sound mixing genres with the upmost originality. His debut two part album ‘Dubs Of The Mad Skint And British’ has the potential to be the next milestone in U.K music and has already been tipped as the english ‘Illmatic’ before its release. The album has nearly been entirely produced by U.G himself and he has co-produced alot of material from various known U.K rappers and singers soon to be released.
He has had praise from other UK artists such as JME, Akala, Wretch 32, Dot Rotten and The Streets (Mike Skinner). This has also spread to radio from the likes of Radio 1 DJ Charlie Sloth, DJ Target on 1Xtra and BBC Introducing. Even celebrity actors and comedians such as Lenny Henry and Adrian Lester have also showed interest. He has had videos featured on popular video channels JDZ media and SBTV.
