UNK is one in a long line of celebrity Atlanta DJs to break into the mainstream. In the late-'90s, the aspiring musician linked up with DJ Montay and DJ Jelly to form the Southern Style DJ crew. Though the unit would largely play b-level gigs -- proms, pep rallies and corporate events ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ Unk caught the attention of influential ATL hip-hop figure Big Oomp, who took the DJ under his wing. Unk cultivated his rapping skills, and soon began appearing on local mixtapes. His break came when he secured on guest spot on the Dem Franchize Boyz album On Top of Our Game. The album was a hit and paved the way for Unk to strike it solo with 2006's hit single "Walk it Out."
