NyuKyung: “2 + 1 was inspired by a girl I like and I wanted to take a different approach in the track as a whole. The entire pop element is a different style for me and I really embraced it. It’s a good song to cheer someone up and perfect for the upcoming fall season!”. Rachael Bellis: “I’m lucky enough to have been in love and I have experienced the beautiful rush that comes from that. So I wanted to put it into a song”.

Their strong messages that carry throughout the tracks make them an unstoppable and noteworthy force. With messages about hope, conquering depression, overcoming obstacles, financial responsibilities and more, Urban Fu$e is far from your average music group. The band is a unique collection of artists because of what they stand for. Their passion about their music and message helps to take them to the next level. They believe in equality and have a polite way of explaining their feelings and their beliefs so that they get people thinking. Their lyrics describe real life events and real life issues. A lot of rappers in this time period really don’t use their talents for good purposes like they do. They take their career and lifestyle and use it to make a difference. Urban Fu$e has used their music to describe some of the hardest things we encounter in our lifetime and to convey that our struggles are often the same no matter where you come from. They do what they do not for the money, but to let everyone struggling know that they’re not alone. While other artists rap about getting money and often objectifying women, Urban Fu$e is out there rapping about real life events, real life pain and real life problems. This is what music was made for. They talk about reality and a universal message. With hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify and SoundCloud combined, Urban Fu$e are quickly approaching the million play mark. “DLW1” is representative of a new era for Urban Fu$e and it will be very interesting to see where they continue to go.
