T UGNA is an up-and-coming hip-hop artist hailing from Roscommon, Ireland. He began making music from a young age and is heavily inspired by the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, J Cole and Brockhampton.
The 19-year-old began releasing music in 2017 with a series of spacious, melodic tracks; most notably "17". In 2018, his music took a more uplifting and inspiring direction with upbeat tracks such as "Sacrifices" and "Ice Cream". These tracks marked a period of transition for UGNA; helping him in improving his craft, as he started to take his rapping from a mere hobby to the realisation of his calling.
His style is mostly influenced by trap styled hip-hop but has been versatile throughout the tracks he has dropped so far, incorporating elements of boom-bap, lo-fi and experimental hip-hop. Although UGNA has had a period of transition in 2019, it is evident that he is evolving into one of the many emerging talents in the Irish hip-hop scene and many new exciting projects are expected from him in 2020.
