Still working on that hot first release.



U901 represents the true 901. The alternative rap band hails from Memphis, TN, and creates a sound that is a blend of various classical and contemporary genres, stylized with their brand of lyricism, aptly named The Highest Technique. They focus their creation on themes that resonate with the world, from feel-good dance journeys and detailed narratives to audio murals from their respective walks of life and social issues. All to push the culture forward. Their power increases, maturing as they forge the path for their generation and the leaders that will rise afterward.

U901 is made up of a number of righteous leaders: Sage (pronounced ‘sayj’), STAR SAMO (pronounced ‘say-mo’), and NaZz (pronounced ‘naaz’) make up the primary team of lyricists and vocalists. The band gained the moniker “U901” from their larger music and arts collective, undefined901. Sage and STAR SAMO, founders of the collective, were compelled continue the expansion of their previous 5 year vision behind making music that would hold strength to change lives. Following their first year of college, the two recruited their long-time friend NaZz in mid 2014, anxious to blend their respective sounds into a major combination, thus completing the new group. This meeting sparked the beginning of their intense training, each of the artists embodying the mantra that steel truly sharpens steel. These soldiers are in a constant stage of competing with and motivating each other by means of polishing their skills, evolving, and creating art. 

The spirit of growth. The desire to build. This is U901.
