The Tribe & Big Cats: Supply and Demand

It's available for download now at the Tribe's MySpace page.

Here's the facebook link too.

I didn't know what to expect, other than that the production would be top-notch (Big Cats! produced or co-produced with DJ Pete the beats), but the entire EP is a great listen. Twin Cities-by-way-of-Chicago emcee Truth Be Told has a perfect hip hop voice, and his storytelling, slice-of-life narratives and straight-up flexing are a lot of fun to listen to.

And at only 20 minutes long, the EP is cohesive and never wears out its welcome; it's just a taste of what the group is about. Haven't seen them live, but I'll be playing their release party this Sunday at the Triple Rock, so definitely looking forward to that:
