Uno Hype talks sending demos to labels when he was a child, his collab with the late great Capital Steez, gems he picked up from his high school rap group, and performs “Color Me” live in studio
Uno Hype has been making music since he was 8 years old. By that measure he’s already got almost 20 years of chops under his belt. It puts him in a unique standing amongst his peers as someone who began learning in an analog world (on pause tapes nonetheless!) and grew into the digital realm. He’s been uploading music online since Soundclick; heads will remember this predates even Myspace.
He’s been grinding for years now and, with all the right weaponry aligned, 2020 was primed to be his big statement year. There were SXSW plans, a tour lined up, album ready, all the things. Then, of course, COVID hit and delayed everyone’s plans slightly. But Uno has been releasing consistently strong singles for months now, and with a new record surely locked and loaded in the holster, there’s no doubt you’ll be hearing a lot more of him soon.
Tune in to hear us talk about sending demos to labels when he was a child, his collab with the late great Capital Steez, and the gems he picked up from his high school rap group.
