From winning the coveted award of 2007 UMA Best Rap Group, Being featured in AllHipHop.com’s ‘The Breeding Ground’, performing on every stage inthe tristate area, to a slew of mixtape appearances with the likes of DJ Kay Slay, Big Mike, Ron G, DJ Gooch and Remy Ma’s DJ, Bedtyme357, there is no doubt these guys exemplify the definition of grind.
In an era where Hip Hop music from the east isn’t appreciated as much throughout radio, The League’s movement perseveres.The League was also presented with the First UNI (Unsigned and Indie) Best Male Rap Group Award at Club Snitch at The Unsigned Shines Industry Showcase.

(whom also produced more than half of the mixtape along with The Produecerz). ‘The League is one of those new young, fly and flashy groups that have incredible lyrics, style and talent’ says Sha Money ‘ I see them doing big things ‘ The League’s previous mixtape ‘LIRR’ Vol 1 Hosted by Hot 97’s Kay Slay was recently nominated for the11th annual Justo ‘Top 10 Street Albums’ With combined press features, accolades like airplay on Hot 97 and Shade 45 as well as opening for artists such as Saigon, Jae Millz, Uncle Murda and Joell Ortiz, The League are surely destined to be one of hip hop’s iconic groups.
