U.N. is a Harlem-based hip hop group founded by Cam'ron in 2009. The group came to formation after Cam'ron had a falling-out with fellow Harlem rapper and co-founder of The Diplomats Jim Jones in 2007.[1]

Currently[edit]

Cam'ron, Vado, and DJ Drama released a mixtape entitled, "Boss of All Bosses," on August 12, 2009 followed by a second mixtape called, "Boss of All Bosses 2," on January 12, 2010. Both mixtapes were released under The U.N. banner. Additionally, The U.N. released Boss of All Bosses 2.5, an expansion of the first two original mixtapes, released on May 12, 2010. Cam'ron and Vado have since announced future plans for a solo Vado mixtape and album, as well as a U.N. album distributed by Asylum.

Cam'ron and Vado have released their first official U.N. album entitled Cam'ron & The U.N. Presents: "Heat in Here" Vol. 1 on May 25, 2010, manufactured and distributed by Asylum Records. Guest appearances on the album include rappers: Young Chris, Gucci Mane, and Felony Fame.

Additionally, The U.N. released the long awaited "Gunz N' Butta" album on April 19, 2011 through "Diplomatic Man Inc." and E1 Music. It features the singles: "Speakin' in Tungs" and "Hey Muma."

The single "Speaking in Tungs" featuring Cam'ron and Vado debuted at number 98 on Billboard's Hip-Hop/R&B songs Chart chart, the following week it rose to #82 on the same chart.

Future Endeavors[edit]

Vado has officially inked a deal with Interscope Records along with his U.N. imprint. The U.N. have much more music to be released with production from Skitzo and AraabMuzik.
