About this project

UZOO is Connecticut's first "supergroup" of Hip Hop. Consisting of 14 individual heavyweights in their respective musical fields. Every member agreed to humble themselves, put their ego aside and come together in the spirit of community - and really decide to combine their efforts to make a dynamic, positive and noteworthy push in the local & regional music scene. AQMNI, Clas!ck, Funk Gero, Jobo, Detelj, Joey Batts, Qusharia, CRE808, Aflredo, Hologram and Wrex Mason all have had individual success - but have combined forces on this album to prove to listeners that raw, lyricism and musical prowess can be harnessed and displayed in a holistic way.

We need these funds to do a number of things, most notably, fund the recording, mixing & mastering of this album. Even though there is a LOT of us - budgeting time, money & schedules to record all this music is very cost effective. Additional funds will go towards the production of merchandise, to ensure that our growing fanbase is covered in UZOO gear.

Lastly, the remaining funds will go towards the The Youngest listening party, and making sure that the whole ZOO gets to plenty of venues, in various states all throughout the Summer of 2017.

Thank you so much! Stay tuned for some updates!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We do not foresee any unique risks, mainly because we have already started recording the album, and most of the songs are written. Managing to get 10 members to shows that are NOT local is a bit difficult, so providing us with the monetary funds needed to drive several cars many distances is a luxury we look forward to. I know many times kick starters look like "handouts" & "freebies" and many people ask themselves, "why can't they do that on their OWN?" We truly cannot, and we want to start a unifying our family even more than we already have, so consider this journey just an ALBUM PRESALE - and nothing more. Thank you again.
