Los Angeles, CA — MTV2 and Time Warner Cable present Road to the Video Music Awards tonight at 8pm on MTV’s new FNMTV hosted by Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz. With a chance to have their July 23rd performance at The Roxy Theatre broadcasts at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, U-N-I threw down against fellow new artists The Ruse and End Roulette to be named Best Breakout L.A. Artist. Along with bragging rights, the winner also gets to perform at the famed VMA Afterparty. All are invited to vote here online for their favorite artists.
Collaborating with producer Ro Blvd., Thurz and Y-O hope to turn some industry heads with their second street album, A Love Supreme. With heavy rotation on MTV2 and MTVu, U-N-I’s video for “Beautiful Day” is stapled a fan favorite. “Soul Hop”, featured as the Sucker Free Drop during Sucker Free Week on MTV2, has a music video in the works directed by Tomas Whitmore. With an upcoming show with The Clipse in New York on August 12, the Inglewood natives are definitely taking West Coast Hip Hop to a new level.
