Ultimate Force
Ultimate Force I'm Not Playing Traffic Ent / Strong City • 2007

Seventeen years after its supposed release, 'Iím Not Playing' LP is finally granted to the crowd. The 12Ē gathered attention and appraisal through its extremely funky sampling of Albert Kingís 'Cold Feet' Ėthe first marriage between hip-hop and blues- and Master Robís sometimes naÔve but funny fresh metaphorical braggadocio.

Unchaste presents vol 1 Oriana Lee EP Unchaste • 2006

What else than musical greatness could you expect from two independent artists with a strong cultural consciousness, a huge musical interest and a very own, creative sound? The 'Oriana Lee EP' runs not yet 20 minutes deep, but itís already been on rotation ten times more.

Uncut Raw
Uncut Raw First Toke Green Llama • 2007

Imagine a dusty studio, isolated from the outer world, filled up with green smoke from the floor to the ceiling, old soul records playing, ready to be looped and an emcee waiting to rip every single one of them. Thatís how this album mustíve been put together.

Underclassmen Underclassic Musikvertrieb • 2007

Somebody remembers that real boombap? We mean that reaaal boombap, where tension was built until the thundering snare came in and ya neck popped way more back than youíd imagine, or where you wanted to put on your hoodie and Timberlands and just wanted to shake your head the whole day. We guess we found it, no, not in Brooklyn or New Jersey, but in the land of cheese and watches (we wonít say chocolate because Belgium is), Switzerland.

Unified School District
Unified School District Take Warning EP Unification • 2005

'Take Warning' contains eight creative songs with various kinds of productions, while Super Uglyís raw and deep voice contrasts or underlines the music. Both artists match perfectly and are able to produce plenty more of good music in the future, starting with 'Brokedown Palace'.

Us3 Run.stop.think N/A • 2009

Some beats are hard to tackle, but both do well at it, with a smooth, variable flow and creative, mature lyricism, their skills certainly donít reveal their young age.

Us3 Lie, Cheat & Steal Us3.com • 2011

Coincidently the album was released in the aftermath of this summerís street riots in Great-Britain, and therefore the albumís title alone sounds the more provocative, especially with Akalaís cockney raps.
