The UZD started out as the Universal Disciplez (UD). A Rhode Island based Hip Hop group that was started by members of Ghetto Black Tribe . It was founded in 2004 with the concept that they where students (disciplez) of many paths and schools of thought's so there for are Universal. The group fizzled out after awhile and years later Nahbi Reality and Lex- Supa would unite with new members and create a updated UD in 2015. Mike Boston, BxYungGz ,Ace Martinez, Popsoundz, Kash and former UD member Danjah Da Hood united with Lex-Supa and Nahbi Reality to form a new UD with a focus on community activism and expanding the team to include the Universal Collective ( a global team of like minded artist from USA , Iceland, Italy, Colombia, France , United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand). In 2016 the UD would link with Brooklyn ZU (first Wu Tang Clan off branch) member Buddha Monk and became a branch of the Zu Bulliez crew. With Buddha's and eventually 12 O,Clock and Merdocs ( Brooklyn Zu) blessing they added the Zu to their name and the Universal Zu Disciplez (UZD) where born. The UZD runs a visual streamed show The Chopp Shop Radio under the Universal Collective banner. The goal of the Universal movement is to advance the culture of Hip Hop through creative music, activism and connecting like minded artist all over the world to be leaders , teachers, guides and mentors.
