Straight Official Sit Downs: Twin Wun

TWIN YUN are a collective duo in Hip-Hop that finds themselves in the hot seat for this edition of Straight Official Sit Downs. Our main man @klassikceo served up the questions and it was a dope convo. Check it out down below and click here for more of the Straight Official Sit Downs.


What is your Name? Where you’re from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?

December DeyDey: The feeling of nostalgia, recollection, joy and introspection that we all feel in December, I want that feeling Dey to Dey. Also it Dey Day is a childhood nickname. At I think it was 3 years old I knew the words, (the most my toddler self could pronounce), to “All about the Benjamins”. Besides that my family was always very religious and the choir played a big role in my developmental years.

Uptown JR: Twin Wun is an acronym for T’was Written Is Now What U Need. We’re from Uptown Bronx, last stop on the 2,5, & 6 trains.

Who and/or what inspires you to create?

December DeyDey: All forms of art inspired my creative curiosity. I listen to anything that resonates with me and even the obscure. Life though, life is one of my main sources of motivation to add my value in musical form, for now. If I had to name people, Jay Electronica, Nas, Jay Z, Tribe, Snoop and the Dogg Pound, Kendrick, Cole, Meek. The list can go on!

Uptown JR: Other artist inspire me to create, besides my own personal ambition drivers. I love being around another creative person in general just to feed off each others ideas.


How would you describe your sound?

December DeyDey: Relatable, intentful, emotion based music.

Uptown JR: Chaotoic

What is your creative process like?

December DeyDey: Really varies, sometimes a whole song will flood my mind right before bed, no beat or anything. Other times it’ll be the connection to the beat that I feel or just the vibes nam sayin.

Uptown JR: Getting a 6 pack of Guinness & some Mary Jane. Linking with DeyDey & digging up emotions that took me years to bury.

What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?

December DeyDey: I like to get in where I fit in, so I’m open to anything if the vibe is right. Would love to work with the greats though, you deem whoever you seem fit. But ultimately I do want a TDE and Dreamville team-wide collab.

Uptown JR: Outkast, The Lox, Tems, Solange

Twin Yun


What is one message you would give to your supporters?

December DeyDey: Thank you! It means more than you know!

Uptown JR: Your either going to love me or hate me, but to find out all you gotta do is play me.

What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?

Uptown JR: I played football in high school and won a championship my junior year.

December DeyDey: I can sing a lil bit, I just don’t display it much. Soon start!

What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?

Uptown JR: Internally dying at a 9 to 5.

December DeyDey: I don’t think ill ever stop writing, but if I had to choose something to do I would most likely be an A&R and a DJ.

Who are some artists/people you admire and why?

Uptown JR: Will Smith, Ludacris, & Drake because of their transition from music to acting and vise versa because that’s a goal of mine.

December DeyDey: Ive always admired Jay Electronica’s flow and delivery. His religious dedication and diction is stupid as well so I’ve always been a big fan. But ultimately anyone in the “conscious” sector has always appealed to me more. I feel like its a real approach to a genre that most people use for a release or vicarious living.


What is the best advice you’ve been given?

Uptown JR: Be patient but aggressive every chance you get.

December DeyDey: KEEP GOING!

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

Uptown JR: The pace of music. I feel we don’t have time to fully enjoy an artist like back in the days of Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston because artist come out now at a rapid rate.

December DeyDey: Most recognition and acknowledgment for mood music and radio play for independent artist.

What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?

Uptown JR: Acting & as a household name.

Straight Official Sit Downs: TRIGGERRUN

TRIGGERRUN stopped by the Straight Official headquarters for this edition of Straight Official Sit Downs. The Hip-Hop Bounce legends sat down with @djspins and they chopped it up about music and more. Check out their 0ne-on-one down below and click here for more of the Straight Official Sit Downs.



Please take time to introduce yourself and tell us where you’re from? 

Hailing from Atlanta by way of Albany (the 229), TRIGGERRUN is composed of the following active members: K. Washington | A. K. Knegil, Herbert Bowens Jr. | H3theArtist & Nathaniel Whitfield | Syncere Akil.

What first got you interested in the entertainment industry?

TRIGGERRUN was inspired at an early age by their parents who introduced us to R&B Soul who encouraged us to pursue our creative talents which led to playing in the orchestra/band in elementary school and formulating one of the most illest dance crews ever to bless the Ruth Harris Performing Art Center at Monroe High School (Albany) a.k.a “the house that TRIGGERRUN built”.

Their love and passion for music would inspire them to share their gift of music on the world stage.  

Who and/or what inspires you to create?

The inspiration comes from the pure love of the musical art form and the ability to create an arrangement of sound thus turning it into a beautiful masterpiece.


How would you describe your sound? 

An eclectic mix of NY East Coast, Miami-bass meets the ATL Dirty South fusion.

What is your creative process like?

Our creative process is impulsive. Inspiration is often birthed at the most inopportune time therefore we have come to stay prepared to seize the moment. This often includes recording ideas in audio note format to capture initial thoughts, progressions or arrangements for later development. 

If you could open a show for any artist who would it be?

As of now, Jay-Z and/or Beyonce due to their international influence, which speaks volume about their influence and popularity in the music industry, as we look to expand our talents beyond the U. S. borders.

What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?

It doesn’t matter! Whoever is open to collaborate. Collaboration is always good on any level whether TRUE or NEW school artistry.



What is one message you would give to your supporters?

Music is for the young at heart so set the narrative, dare to be different & stay on your grind.

What hidden talent(s) do you have? 

H3 is more of a renaissance brother who possesses many talents such as acting, singing, piano, guitar and drawing

AK’s talent includes singing, saxophonist, graphic arts and videography.

Syncere Akil possesses talents in videography, graphic arts and clothing brand apparel creation.

What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?

As the athlete of the group, A. K. would be involved in youth sports mentoring and giving back to the youth teaching life skills through the game of sports.

H3 would continue pursuing his dream of theater and acting while focusing on his new love of charcoal drawing.

Syncere would be continuing to build his real-estate empire flipping houses while at the same time working on his clothing brand marketing for himself and the group.

Who are some artists you admire and why?

Rakim is one of the cornerstones that the foundation of hip-hop was built on. His style of MC and lyricism still reigns supreme until this day as one of the illest to ever bless the mic.


What is the best advice you’ve been given? 

Stay humble, be prepared and when opportunity presents go for it!

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

The hierarchy and structure of the business from the top executives that have exploited artists over the years through bad business ethics and contract disputes.

What’s next for you? Where would you like to see yourself next year? 

Next is award nomination on this new independent platform in hopes of transcending and elevating another level of achievement in this game.

You dropped your latest release ‘2 Da Flo’. Tell us about it. 

‘2 Da Flo’ is another eclectic party jam sponsored by the “Feel Good Music” vibe that TRIGGERRUN is an ambassador.  It’s a simple call and response song to get the people off the wall and onto the dance floor.

Also, working on the video so be on the look out for the video to drop around June of this year.

Any departing words for our viewers/subscribers?

TRIGGERRUN is streaming on all major platforms. Please follow, like and share and subscribe. Also, we want to say thanks to all of our fans, current and future, for your support and for taking time out of your busy schedule to build. LOVE!
