STREAM: A Tribe Called Red Drops New Single “R.E.D.” feat. Yasiin Bey, Narcy, and Black Bear

A Tribe Called Red released another single this month, building much anticipation for their new album “We Are The Halluci Nation”, dropping September 16, 2016.

“R.E.D.”, which features Yasiin Bey, Narcy, and Black Bear, made its world premiere on Ebro’s #Beats1Ebro radio show on Apple Music this week.

The single includes powerful verses from legendary hip-hop artist Yasiin Bey (aka the mighty Mos Def)  and Iraqi-Canadian MC The Narcicyst (aka Narcy)—dropping fire lyrics over ATCR’s “Stadium Pow Wow” beat, and the song is a testament to border-smashing, cross-cultural collaboration and creative connection.

“I think it is the first time in history where you have an African, an Iraqi, and the Indigenous [People] of Canada are on one song”, Narcy says. “It feels like the beginning of something new and old, the rebirth after many injustices.”

This is just the beginning of a new phase of Tribe “showing the power of our people combined”.
