About Uneek Music

Uneek Music (UM) was founded in 1996 by Industry Tastemaker Eugene “Big U” Henely Jr. as a medium-sized independent record label based in Los Angeles, CA. The label quickly gained success with early releases by Nipsey Hussle, Kurupt, Sandman Negus, ShortStop, and the explosive production team 1500 or Nothin.

Opportunities soon presented themselves to take the music on the road, and it was there that the legacy truly began to take shape. Still as hungry as ever, focused with a strong work ethic, they hit every town they could. No matter how big or small the crowd was, the Uneek Music artists poured their hearts, energy, and raw talents out on stage.

In addition to the fans, Uneek Music also made a point to embrace other like-minded artists across the country, thus continuing to grow and inspire friends, artists, and aspiring entrepreneurs alike.

The UM label was often associated with “the 1st Generation movement”, which proved financially fruitful; giving the future generation of music makers a place to call home as they cement their positions in music’s vast landscape.

In the 2000's the label began to grow as a thriving record label, making a large impression on the west coast hip hop scene. UM solidified its position by releasing albums from artists and producers including: The Game, Lupe Fiasco, Poo Bear, Sydney Arcane, Mally Mall, Blu Sky, and Spiffy.

After its early successes the label consulted for some of hip-hop’s most noted artists and figures from negotiating a deal with Reebok in 2005 for The Game to develop his "Hurricanes" sneaker, to representing Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, and Suge Knight to name a few.

In 2012, the label took a pause following the sudden and tragic loss of one of its founding artists, Sandman Negus. His unfortunate passing shook the hearts of both the management and the artists on the label.

In 2017, Uneek Music gathered its collective strength, and began rebranding the label with a new generation of artists who will define the future. The UM vision is to continue to push the creative boundaries of sound, and to represent the roster of artists as faithfully and diligently as possible.
