U-N-I in the Hot Seat

This week mtvU puts U-N-I in the hot seat. Previous artists from the town include Blue Scholars and Amber Pacific. Click here to read the full interview.

Q: Tell us about your craziest touring experience.
Thurz: My craziest tour experience would have to be in Seattle. We just got through rockin' at Chop Suey (shout outs to Laced Up and DJ Hyphen and J Moore of KUBE 93). We were approached by four different groups of girls that all wanted to take us out and chill. A few of the girls started arguing over us and trying to force us to make a decision.

Y-O: My craziest tour experience has to be in Miami. The fans showed us love-the women were gorgeous and there were a series of hilarious events. To name a few: Thurz falling off his scooter... ahahahaha, and our manager Chris London getting bird shit on his head at the beach.

Q: What city in America is the most fun to visit and why?

Thurz: I think L.A. is the best place to be, but New York has to be the best place to visit. The folks out there are real cool and show us a lotta love. It took me a minute to get used to the subway system, but that's the only place you can get drunk and not have to worry about driving home or waiting on a taxi, or paying five dollars for a gallon of gas!

Y-O: The most fun city to visit for me has to be my hometown, Seattle, WA. A lot of my family is out there, so to go back and visit is always a refreshing experience. Family is the core to Y-O.
