Recently, I linked with 2008ighties very own UG at the Gowhere headquarters. It's always a good time when this fresh hip-hop crew is around the office. This time around, I chopped it up with producer/rapper UG. We spoke about his relationship with the rest of BRKF$T Club, college life, his heritage, and his creative process behind his first full length tape Mercy Me.
