Also Bengali Unit
A group of five SQU-based rappers formed in late 2003.
Originally set out to be a clique of parodists, B-Unit quickly established themselves to be among the elite emcees in Muscat. The Bengali crew signed to Road B Records in late 2003, and within a few hours, Backfire (S. Rahman), DJ Spree (Z. Islam), Killah B (A. Zaman), Klutch (J. Islam), and Soundflash (M. Rizwan) had released their infamous club anthem, "In Da Staff Club," which epitomized the pitifulness of a local recreation center.
After receiving months of airplay, B-Unit decided to raise the stakes, broaden their range of topics, and tone their microphone skills. In the next 16 months or so, the group released hit after hit in what would eventually become their debut album "The Korrupted LP." Featuring tracks like the derisive "Thorny Trees," the satirical "Eat Rice," and the introspective "The Question Still Remains", "The Korrupted LP" was finally released in the summer of 2004. Current reports have it that a new project is under way.
Yo, have you heard that new song by 50 Cent? He totally copied B-Unit!
"Naw, I don't need pistols
And I don't give two s**ts
About knives, pit bulls,
Or even B-Unit."
