The following year, Uno teamed up with Playboi Carti to release his most popular track to date, "What," which has amassed well over 3 million plays on SoundCloud. Known to frequently collaborate with the likes of Maxo Kream, Thouxanbanfauni and other Southern artists, Uno The Activist is looking to bring his signature sound to the mainstream.
