T UGNA is an up and coming rap 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 in improving his craft as he began 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 house, 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 very soon.
