Jonathan UniteUs (aka JohnNY U.), is a Brooklyn born and bred emcee and 1/5th of the New York City collective Operation Industry Shut Down (O.I.S.D.) The artist formerly known as E.Y.E.Q. changed his alias to represent the unification of personalities. “JohnNY U., which is short for UniteUs, is the bonding of my styles and personalities. JohnNY is the balance between my ‘conscious’ and care free mind” Deciding to pick up a pen around the end of 2005/beginning of 2006 was a decision made through the influence of his close friend and O.I.S.D. co-creator J.Monopoly. The passion and fun he witnessed when J and him would have small freestyle sessions in high school (where JohnNY would provide beats via lunch table) ultimately put a battery in his back. Forming the group with J and the other members would only fuel his passion even more, “I wanted to grow lyrically, mentally & spiritually through the art. ” With 5 solo efforts and 2 collaborative mixtapes, (not counting O.I.S.D. projects) JohnNY has found growth and the comfort to create freely at will. Whether across boom-bap laced production or spacey soundscapes, the imagery and feel for JohnNY’s music stays true.
