Biography

Atlanta DJ and rapper Unk entered the spotlight in 2006 with the hit single "Walk It Out." Under the guidance of Atlanta underground impresario Big Oomp, he turned the local Atlanta hit into a national one, enjoying rotation on MTV2 and BET as well as some radio outlets around the country. Known in Georgia as DJ Unk, Anthony Platt began spinning records in 1998. After crossing paths with DJ Jelly and DJ Montay, he joined their DJ entourage, the Southern Style DJs, performing for high-school parties, proms, pep rallies, and other events around the state of Georgia. In 2000, an impressed Big Oomp took Unk under his wing to develop his rhyming skills and incorporated the DJ/rapper into his Oomp Camp. Unk became a regular in Atlanta's mixtape circuit, appearing on his own as well as on other DJs' material. After his first hit record and a guest spot on the LP On Top of Our Game by Dem Franchize Boyz (Unk's old high-school classmates), he pushed for his debut album, Beat'n Down Yo Block, which was released in October 2006 on Oomp's Big Oomp Records and distributed via Koch Entertainment. 2econd Season followed two years later and fared roughly as well on the charts; like the debut, it fell just short of the Billboard 200's upper half and reached the Top Ten of the rap chart. A handful of singles were scattered through 2014, a period during which he planned to release an album titled Revamp. ~ Cyril Cordor
