Uno Hype – Fxck The Hype [Mixtape] | Free Download

Although cities North, East and West of Maryland are cultivating their own promising, and often polarising, talents, with the likes of Chicago’s brandUn DeShay, L.A.’s Casey Veggies and New York’s Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, it’s easy for the DMV to get lost in the mayhem. 18-year-old rapper Uno Hype is looking to reaffirm his hometown’s status on the hip-hop map.

Having left his musical footprint on the web last year with Ready for Takeoff, Uno returns in 2012 with his newest project, Fxck The Hype, which is the most complete body of work thus far from the already polished emcee.

The 9-track EP gathers fellow freshman Joey BadA$$, Hassani Kwess and Tayyib Ali, as well as the wisdom of the Kushed God himself, Smoke DZA, for a 9-track project that speaks to both old school and new school fans alike.

Production comes solely from DJ Black Diamond, who matches Uno’s lyrical finesse with an incredible array of dusty boom bap, charmingly soulful and bass-pounding, electronic-leaning beats.
