T UGNA is a 19 year old hip hop artist from Roscommon, Ireland. He began releasing tracks on SoundCloud in 2016 which helped significantly in developing his sound today. His best works to date include the reminiscent, thought-provoking ''Heart Stone'' which was best described in a review of the track by Nialler9 writer Ruth Cronin as being ''drenched in hip-hop influences with a prominent keyboard'' and having ''rhymes that deal with change and growth and the people that you lose during those developments.'' The upbeat and inspiring ''Sacrifices'' shows us UGNA's strong rhyming and lyrical ability with powerful lines like ''finding self-motivation in the darkest f*cking times'' and ''Can we smile when we do cry, then go dancing in the rain?''. His style is mostly influenced by trap and hip hop music but is versatile as we have seen on many occasions with UGNA's music with many different melodies entering his newest material. It is clear that T UGNA is becoming one of the many emerging talents in the Irish hip hop scene and many more new exciting projects are expected from him very soon.
