Born 2 B - Juicin' (ukhiphopborn2b.bandcamp.com)
In the nineties, Born 2 B released a single, “The Band Played The Boogie” with NW1 on Ninja Tune Records. The international success of the single helped launch the careers of Hip-Hop Jazz Group US3, after a name change from ‘NW1′ and led to the deal with Blue Note Records.

After their signing to Blue Note/EMI, Born 2 B read a website blog where a fan of the Ninja Tune single pondered the question, “what would have happened if US3 had continued recording with Ninja Tune, would they have retained the more credible underground Jazz-Rap style they had developed rather than the more pop commercial-style they produced on Blue Note?”. That always stuck with him and recently he decided to address it.

So, Born 2 B teamed up with one of the most in-demand rhythm sections in the UK, Jazz-Funk band Push to create, what he believes, represents what the Jazz-Hip Hop scene was all about with a 2021 vision. The result is his new single "Juicin’".

Push members include Crispin Taylor on drums (MC Solaar, Galliano, Seal), Jazz Legends Gerard Precensor on Trumpet and Ed Jones on Sax (both who have featured with US3) to name a few.
