According to Webster’s dictionary, the word deploy means to spread out for a deliberate purpose. In the world of urban music, the purpose is to collectively advance and overcome unwarranted obstacles says the New Orleans Union Of Entertainment All Stars.  In memory of the tragic invasion that occured on September 11th in 2001, another great body of work has been created.  “The Deployment” features Jay Da Menace’s “A Soldier’s Story” which is a tribute to America’s troops.  Timely and appropriate, New Orleans Union Of Entertainment All Stars assemble some of its seasoned artists such as Ghetto Twiinz, Fiend, UNLV, Devious, Mista Meana, Cheeky Blakk, Ms. Tee, the late Tim Smooth, Sporty T., and Soulja Slim.  Be sure to add this memorable anthology to your personal collection as the Crescent City’s finest batch of talent delivers poetic creativity while recalling the incidents of September 11 and Hurricane Katrina.  As “The Shutdown” by Da U Boys approaches its release on September 20th, they are also featured along with a cast of young guns like The Show, Majesty Sozey, Young Torrento, and AMG. “The Deployment is a special project centered around our soldiers in music and it pays homage to our common American soldier and citizens who have been affected by unforeseen events in our lifetime.”

As September 20 approaches, the will of a man grows stronger.  The will of Da U intensifies as they continue to overcome hurdles in the wavering music industry.  The hardwork will bear its fruits because this group has become a mainstay in New Orleans rap.  It’s much easier to quit when the battle seems tough, but this group is relentless.  Check out Da U Boys on NOUE mixtape series as we anxiously await “Tha Shutdown”.

Press the play button and enjoy nonfiction rap from “Da U Boys.”  The imagery of the video fits the flow perfectly as the waters flow and remind of us “Sittin On The Dock Of The Bay,” but ironically  not wasting time…
