[Album] THE UN - "U N Or U Out" (ReIssue)

In 2005 Roc Marciano, Dino Brave, Mic Raw and Laku released their one and only album as The UN, the brilliant hardcore set "U N Or U Out". Although I was lucky enough to get ahold of a copy when it first dropped, it quickly went out of print and if it's one 2000s album to deserve being in print it's this one. With the gritty street realism provided by Marciano, Dino Brave and the rest and hard hitting pure hip-hop beats courtesy of Oddisee, Pete Rock, Large Pro, and Mahogany, there's really not many albums that's as unbelivably dope as this one. Luckily for those of you who missed it while it was still in print, Fat Beats have reissued the album on both CD, cassette and vinyl as well as digital @ iTunes. In addition to the original 14 tracks this version includes two equally fat joints recorded around the same time. "UN Da House" appeared on the "World Domination" mixtape but the other bonus track "For Da Love" is entirely new to my ears and an absolutely stunning track. Fat Beats have uploaded the entire album as a free stream for your listening pleasure below. Spotted @ Collectors Item (peace Brandon).
