UNLV, the New Orleans rapping duo whose body of work historically encompassed the energetic style of New Orleans hip hop known worldwide as “bounce music”, is back on the scene, with a new style of delivery, threatening to seize national acclaim with their new self-titled album UNLV: The Relaunch, scheduled for release May 20, 2014, on their new label T.Y.T. Global Entertainment/INGrooves/Fontana/Universal.
Known for their former affiliation with Cash Money Records, as signed artists, UNLV 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. While their music has always achieved regional success, The Relaunch is expected to give the remaining group members, Tec-9 and Lil Ya, global acclaim.
Preceding the release of The ReLaunch's first single "Can't Walk Straight" in April 2014, the legendary group teamed up with Thizz Latin's 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. A video was shot in November 2013, and made its debut February 2014, please find a link to the video attached here for your viewing:
