Bursting forth from Ottawa Canada, world-renowned native Producer/DJ crew A Tribe Called Red, who are Ian “DJ NDN” Campeau, Tim “2oolman” Hill and Bear Witness, are gearing up to release their third studio We Are The Halluci Nation worldwide on the 16th of September. The trio have gifted us with their incredible video for ‘R.E.D’ Feat. Yasiin Bey (Formerly known as Mos Def), Narcy (Snippet) and Black Bear (a drum group from the Manawan Atikamekw Nation in Quebec)
The video is a visual representation of of history being made, it’s the first time an African, an Iraqi and the Indigenous of Canada are on one song and now video. A Tribe Called Red matches ferocious verses from Yasiin Bey and Narcy, as well as the thunderous rhythms of drum group Black Bear, with expansive shots dynamically edited together to showcase the artists’ assertion of cultural identity. Produced by DAIS and shot in Cape Town, the video unveils a new chapter in the album’s narrative, centered around the emergence of the Halluci Nation and rooted in indigenous worldviews.
We Are The Halluci Nation will be released in Australia on September 16th, you can pre-order the album HERE
