A Look Inside LA’s U-Mini Burger: spin-off of famed Umani Burger

The owner/founder of Umani Burger, Adam Fleischman, sat down to talk about the difference between his famous, California food spot(s) Umani Burger and his new project, U-Mini Burger, as well as what separates U-Mini from the rest of the fast food restaurants around the City Of Angels. Apparently, the burgers don’t lose a single bit of soul or integrity between Umani & U-Mini either- just a little bit of the price. In fact, the 1/4 lb. burgers look so good that you might consider relocating to Los Angeles just to be closer to them. 

Up-and-coming Chicago resident, The Holy Ki, managed to bless us with his debut, full-length project overnight. Entitled NewWavey, the release is everything you would expect from Kit after hearing his singles “Fuck You" & "Profit Prophet" and, to no surprise, is executive produced by Chicago-based production team The-Drum.

With guest slots from The GTW (a production credit) & Jeremiah Meece of The-Drum fame, Kit mans the drugged-out, syrupy rap opus solo dolo. Stream the mixtape right here and grab it via Mediafire. Smoke to it & get #LOWNT. It’s the only way to go.
