UNLV, the New Orleans rapping duo whose body of work encompasses the energetic style of New Orleans Hip Hop known worldwide as “bounce music”, is back on the scene threatening to seize national acclaim with their new self-titled album UNLV: The Relaunch, scheduled for release in early 2014, on their new label T.Y.T. Global Entertainment with distribution via INgrooves/Fontana/Universal Records.
Best known for their former affiliation with Cash Money Records, as signed artists, U.N.L.V. hails from New Orleans, Louisiana and consisted of rappers Tec-9, Lil Ya, and Yella Boy. Acronymously named “Uptown Niggas Living Violently”, they recorded four albums from 1993 to 1996 under Cash Money Records. Their musical releases were among the first examples of well-distributed New Orleans music, produced by, then, in-house producer Mannie Fresh. Historically, their music has achieved regional success down South and in parts of the mid-west. But The Relaunch is expected to give the remaining group members, Tec-9 and Lil Ya, national acclaim.
Preceding the release of The ReLaunch’s first single in early 2014, the legendary group teamed up with Thizz Latin up and coming recording artist Lil Ro to create the hot new club single “Look Back At It”. ‘Look Back At It’ is currently being distributed digitally through GT Digital Distribution and currently available for purchase.
‘Look Back At It’ is UNLV’s announcement that they are back to music. The group is currently working on their promotional tour schedule.
