With messages about hope, conquering depression, overcoming obstacles, financial responsibilities and more, Urban Fu$e is far from your average music group.

Urban Fu$e believes in equality, and has a polite way of explaining their feelings and their beliefs so that they get people thinking. Their lyrics describe real life events and real life issues. A lot of rappers in this time period really don’t use their talents for good purposes like they do. That’s just the thing, too. They take their career and lifestyle, and use it to make a difference. 

Urban Fu$e has used their music to describe some of the hardest things we encounter in our lifetime. Our struggles are often the same no 

matter where you come from. Urban Fu$e does what they do not for the money, but to let everyone struggling know that they’re not alone. 

While other artists rap about getting money and often objectifying women, Urban Fu$e is out there rapping about REAL LIFE EVENTS, real life pain, and real life problems. This is what music was made for. They talk about reality and a universal message. 

With hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify and SoundCloud combined, Urban Fu$e are quickly approaching the million play mark. “DLW1” is representative of a new era for Urban Fu$e and it will be very interesting to see where they continue to go.
