Los Angeles, CA (January 21, 2010) – In November of last year hip hop group Get Busy Committee (the new collaboration between Ryu from Styles of Beyond and Fort Minor, Apathy, and producer for Snoop, Clipse, Game, Busta Rhymes and more, Scoop Deville) released their new album, Uzi Does It in a very unique format: 2GB Uzi-shaped Flash drives. The format was a hit and surprisingly the band sold through their first order of 1200 Uzis in less than three months.
