Uzi Florida's Finest

Back to Player  

Uzochi Onyejuruwa, better known by his stage name UZI, was born on August 1, 1988 and raised in the neighborhood of Fairway (located in the city of Miramar, Florida). UZI started to take rapping seriously at the age of 17 where he would write bars and just freestyle as much as possible. UZI has a delivery that easily captures the ears of his peers and those who have never even heard of him due to his versatility and impeccable flow. It’s very refreshing to hear a young artist hit the scene with vivid story lines, hard hitting punch lines, and dope rhymes we can actually repeat and understand. UZI is like no other, he has studied Rap and Hip Hop from various styles and delivery techniques and even takes time to learn about the business aspect of the entertainment industry. With turning a hobby into a talented craft, the past few years of practice and studying have turned UZI into an unprecedented artist. Heavy influences such as Z-Ro, Tech N9ne, K-Rino, Outkast, Cee-Lo, Field Mob, UGK, Twista, Chamillionaire, Jay-Z and many more have been the sources of style for UZI. UZI was built by taking pieces from each of these artists and molding them into one. Constantly free styling from a young age was the practice UZI used to hone his skills. Free styling quickly turned into verse writing which in turn blossomed into his phenomenal song writing ability. At this point, UZI has reached a level of artistry in which he simply needs to be heard by the masses. With an amazing work ethic matched only by his talent, UZI has taken the necessary steps to get out and get connected. This is an up and coming artist to listen and look out for, UZI.
