"Amazing...very eclectic. You can definitely tell your influences range from reggae/dancehall/hip-hop. I’d love to hear more anytime, Your releases would be well-received by our eclectic audience. "
Wax Poets Magazine Brooklyn described as “The best and most exquisitely laid-out music bimonthly in America.” by The New York Times Style Magazine
'The 13th Tribe and their new single Negro are about as inspired as it gets. Negro is a tidal wave of musical and cultural influences, as they draw from their collective backgrounds, taking you from Africa to the UK to South America, to create one lethal cocktail.
Best described as a jazzy cha cha topped off with patois and scratching, the track is all about celebrating individuality and personal pride. You may not be able to make out all of the words but you can't help but get swept up in the rhythmic emotion.
The accompanying music video is just as colourful (no pun intended) as the song, using stereotypical minstrel-type images in an entertaining way that gets their message across without being preachy.'
Review By Hazard For Planet Urban
"Negro is great - really infectious. The video reminds me of the early days of the Hac groovin with The Jazz Defektors when the Hac screens showed vids like that with b+w movie clips-
