I first discovered A Tribe Called Red back through their album Nation II Nation in 2013 when I was training to be a DJ at WRFL Lexington. They had a truly unique sound blending the music of Canada’s First Nations and varying types of electronic and hip-hop. They’ve come back with their third studio album We Are the Halluci Nation. It’s a feature heavy album with guests such as Saul Williams, Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def), and Canadian native throat singer Tanya Tagaq. The album is thoroughly enjoyable and a great mixture of world, electronic, and hip-hop music. Check out the music video for the track R.E.D below.
