Rapper UNO the Activist, aka Young Shyne, is straight out of Zone 3, Atlanta. He's armed to the teeth with ubiquitous auto-tuned, Southern hip-hop ballads — and fueled by copious amounts of liquid codeine. UNO dropped his debut single, "I Doubt It," during his senior year of high school, and dreamed of being an audio engineer. After one semester attending the Art Institute, he dropped out and released the single "Parkin' Lot Pimpin'" in 2015. In fall 2016, UNO was shot inside of an Uber, but he bounced back from the trauma to release the EP "Sorry for the Wait (Brooke's Interlude)" and his full-length "Live. Shyne. Die."
UNO the Activist will perform with Thouxanbanfauni and Warhol.SS on Sunday, December 10, at Photo City Improv, 543 Atlantic Avenue. 6 p.m. $20 general; $100 meet & greet. tecshows.com; soundcloud.com/678uno.
