The UMC's was an American hip-hop duo from the borough of Staten Island
in New York City.
The group was composed of Haas G and Kool Kim, who released the
critically acclaimed, full-length album Fruits of Nature in 1991,
which garnered chart success with the duo's #1 Billboard Hot Rap
Single "Blue Cheese" and #2 Hot Rap Single "One
To Grow On." In 1994, the duo released its sophomore album,
Unleashed but split up soon after.
Since the group's break-up, Haas G has focused on producing music,
most notably garnering a #1 hit for Lil Kim featuring 50 Cent,
with "The Magic Stick." Kool Kim reinvented himself as
the controversial underground emcee NYOIL.
