NEW YORK – The Urban Wrestling Federation announced today that they
have reached agreement with the ‘Carol City Cartel,’ aka Triple C’s, who
record under the Maybach Music Group imprint, founded by best-selling
hip-hop artist and entrepreneur Rick Ross.

To further develop their exploding roster of talent, the UWF has turned to
artists coming from one of the most influential groups in urban music. The
Triple C’s (Gun Play, Torch, Young Breed) have been tapped to be utilized
in the programming, characterization, and promotion of future UWF
battles including the next arena filming, which will take place in Miami this Fall.

Additionally, plans are in the works for a UWF promotional mix tape to be
released in the near future; where artists from the Maybach Music Group’s
Carol City Cartel will make significant contributions. In addition to the
promotional mix tape, these tracks will be used for entrances during UWF
matches, pay-per-view presentations and other promotional events.

The Triple C’s of the Maybach Music group will be joining the list of artists
already involved with the UWF, including 40 Glocc, Melle Mel, Red Café,
Big Block, Uncle Murda, Brisco, Billy Blue, L.E.P. Bogus Boys and Cuban Link.
The UWF continues to be in negotiations with Maybach music for
involvement of additional artists with the UWF.

Last week, UWF Founder and CEO Steve Karel, aka ‘Steve The Hustler,’
was seen shooting footage of the Triple C’s in Miami’s South Beach, which
will be used for the next UWF broadcast event, as well as in a promo video

to be distributed via as well as other
online platforms later this month.

“We’re thrilled to have the Carol City Cartel artists, Gun Play, Torch and
Young Breed of the Maybach Music Group involved in the Urban
Wrestling Federation,” said UWF President Steve Karel. “As we continue to
grow the federation, more and more top-level talent are coming to the
table realizing that the ring is the newest place for artists to gain exposure
and prove that they’ve got what it takes to hold their own and prove

The Urban Wrestling Federation, which debuted earlier this summer with
“First Blood,” a dynamic and exhilarating performance that combined the
worlds of hip-hop music and professional wrestling was created by

well as various other locations around the country, and was viewed by
thousands as part of 100+ showings on top pay-per-view platforms.

before seen level of entertainment. ‘First Blood,’ was shown on iN
