UZs choice of artwork, not mine
  • UZ's choice of artwork, not mine
For the past month or so I've been following the SoundCloud account of someone named ︻╦╤─ ƱZ ─╤╦︻, which I'm pretty sure is supposed to be pronounced "Uzi." (For the sake of legibility I'll refer to this person from here on out as "UZ.") UZ is a somewhat shadowy character, with zilch in the way of publicly available background info, and the one SoundCloud message I sent to him/her hasn't been returned yet. But shadowy is fine as long as the music holds up, and UZ's twitchy, complicated trap beats definitely work for me.

Things are currently blowing up for UZ, with an EP for Mad Decent subsidiary Jeffree's set to drop today and a conspicuous mention in Jonah Weiner's excellent article for Slate on the rapidly diminishing importance of geography in hip-hop. Get on the train early and click through to hear UZ and LOLGurlz's remix of 5kinAndBone5 & Robert Jeffrey's "Penis Power," featuring a sampled appearance by human meme Alexyss Tylor.
