BIO

Born in Queens, NY and raised in Hempstead, Long Island. I.U. made his way into the game during the “Golden Era” of Hip Hop. He landed a deal with Cold Chillin’ Records which featured big name artists such as Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie, Kool G. Rap, MC Shan, and Roxanne Shante just to name a few. He quickly carved his niche as “The Barry White of Rap” with such classics as “Something New”, “Sugar Free”, “Girl In The Mall”, and “This Is a Recording”. I.U. went on to record two more albums and collaborated with the hottest emcees in the game, Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, and Big L respectively. He also produced for KRS-ONE, Ice T, Heltah Skeltah, and the list goes on. To this day Grand Daddy I.U. is still making hard beats and spitting classic bars. In a world of Hip Hop where lyricism has taken a back seat to fashion, pre-school hooks, and off beat flows, he seeks to bring skills back to the forefront with a bunch of new projects that include “Shots Fired” “Self Made Man’’ “The P.I.M.P. project and Grown man B.I. as well as previously unreleased joints from the 90’s.Stay tuned.
