Biography

It was Fall of 1989, possibly one of the greatest moments of the Hip-Hop culture at  it's present time; From the release of Big Daddy Kane's , "It's A Big Daddy Thing" to Kool G Rap & Dj Polo's "Road To Riches" and Spike Lee's legendary release of "Do The Right Thing", there was a soon to be new addition to the Hip-Hop culture born into the world. Born in the South Bronx region of New York City, a baby was born baby the name of Lance but to the streets he would simply be known as Union.

Raised in the Morrisania section of the Bronx, a poverty stricken and drug infested neighborhood, Union was instantly exposed to a lifestyle which revolved around drugs, money and violence at a young age. As Kool G Rap & Dj Polo's entitled album, he was on the "Road to Riches" in the drug game. Union soon reached a pivotal turning point in his life when his long time friend was gunned down by the NYPD. "I'm SOMETHING like a rapper" says the 24 year old Union, "there's no gimmicks here, my raps are real life. You could pick up a newspaper and read this shit! Most of my friends are either dead or in jail and sooner or later, I knew that would be me. So I got focused!"

"I never held a legitimate job for more than a week" says the reserved Union, therefore he took his lifestyle to the beats and pursued music as his way out. U-EZ, as he like to call himself, has displayed an impeccable work ethic and dedication towards his new found passion. In 2011, he along with fellow M.C. Harly released their first mixtape entitled "The Value Of A Dollar" under the (U)nited (S)tates (C)urrency umbrella. The mixtape was on Hot 97's veteran Dj Funk Masters Flex websitewww.InFlexWeTrust.com. Union also found himself featured on childhood affiliate, French Montana's "Keep Their Heads Ringing." Following the release of "The Value Of A Dollar", Union released his first solo mixtape project on www.DatPiff.com entitled "Fools Gold" with a list of visuals released on YouTube (UnionOfUSC) displaying his artistry and talents; Union has opened up for both Fabolous and Stalley of MMG. Holding true to his road to riches mentality, Union looks to broaden his horizons by expanding his business ventures into the videography and fashion industries by building his USC brand all while working on his first album released entitled Shit Illy.
