Rappers Under Da Influence Nominated For Two Awards

Bay Area Bay Area rap veterans Big Quint (Quinton Morris) and Digg (Derrick Reed), who comprise the rap duo Under Da Influence (U.D.I.), have been nominated in two categories of the First Annual Bay Area Rap Scene Award (BARS). The awards show is slated for July 30th at the Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco. Under Da Influence was nominated for awards in two categories: Group Of The Year and Underground Album Of The Year for their release of "The Hangover."

It is an honor to be recognized, says Digg, adding, To me it, means our hard work has paid off, and that people are now listening. The groups ghetto gold albums are produced by his brother, Mr. Laid, and Chill Black, who together comprise Laid Black Productions. U.D.I.s Big Quint notes, Its feels real good be recognized like that, and that he feels the BARS Awards will help further unify the Bay Area hiphop community, and will help hiphop fans beyond those in Northern California become more familiar with Bay Area artists.

U.D.I. will be releasing a follow-up album, Drunk Life, late this summer on RNB Entertainment Group and Laid Black Productions.
