Omowale Mayasa is an Father,Entrepreneur,Educator,Emcee,Writer and Producer .
Omowale and Bomani Mayasa have a Brotherhood/Friendship that spans nearly thirty years. They were a rap group and and at one point even owned a label together.
Omowale was always around (he was there for the conception and inception of United Front) but did not become an official member until 2010. Omowale also has the distinction of being the only United Front member to be on every project released.
Omowale was a major contributor to the now classic:BlackPowerManhoodRap starring Bomani Mayasa(2011) and as a result created Cipha IncOmplete(2012) due to overwhelming demand from UF supporters. This project spawned and coined what UF now calls “Guerilla Albums”, “mixtapes” that play like albums but may use/contain industry beats. Just as Guerillas use whatever they may have in their immediate environment to achieve their goals regardless of limited resources. UF has done the same to transmit their all too important message. As a result, 10 out of 10 times the listener forgets about the original track song altogether.
Aside from his musical contributions, Omowale is a taskmaster in the UF collective, also acting as A&R…sometimes manager and executive producer.
United Front is not just a rao collective but also a formation of warriors and Scholars who also walk the walk. Omowale Mayasa is also a co-founder/contributor to the Liberation School enrichment program established (est.2010) and The Teach Our Own movement(est.2016) and frequent supporter of Afrikan Centered Educational institutions.
Future Projects: Young Elder Vol.1 (Djeli) , Harriet’s Shotgun (w/UniverCity Ave) and Radio FREE Dixie (w Bomani Mayasa).

Name: Bomani UFG aka Bomani Mayasa
From: Brooklyn, Ny
Bomani UFG (aka Bomani Mayasa) started writing rhymes at the young age of 12. His early influences were Big Daddy Kane, Ice Cube & Nas. As a young boy, Bomani fell in love with hip hop, and was almost NEVER seen without his “walk-man” & headphones, blasting his favorite rap songs.
In 2003 Bomani UFG founded UNITED FRONT after being inspired by the classic dead prez album “Let’s Get Free”. Bomani released the first UNITED FRONT “Guerrilla Album” or “mixtape” after recruiting his long time friend and fellow emcee Deedle Green , titled “UNITED WE STAND: Vol 1”. Soon after Vol 1, “50 Shots Back: Afrikan Insurrecktion Muzik” was released in 2007, as a response to the murder of Sean Bell by police terrorist in November of 2006.
Bomani released 2 subsequent guerrilla albums: “BLACKPOWERMANhoodRAP” and “Lumumba’s Revenge” — both being solo efforts — are now considered classics amongst UNITED FRONT core supporters and hip hop lovers alike.
The “UNITED FRONT General” will be releasing “ConverSÈtions” and “Radio Free Dixie” with Ambassador O later ‘this year.
