A Tribe Called Red: 'The OG' ft. Black Bear

A Tribe Called Red and Black Bear have teamed up for the new single 'The OG'.  The significance of this track is huge, as it is a celebration of a famous moment of defiance as Canadian MP Romeo Saganash delivered in Canadian parliament regarding the treatment of idigenous people.  A statement was released with the single: 
"It would be impossible to overstate the impact that Romeo Saganash's words had on the Indigenous world and on us personally. We feel that the stand he took that day in parliament needs to be remembered, memorialized and commemorated. This is a celebration of that moment. Romeo, the #HalluciNation salutes you ✊"

Saganash's words can be heard within the song 'The OG' below, and the statement can be watched here.  The track itself is an absolute banger, and it's roots in the harsh realities of Canadian history makes it all the more powerful.  Check out A Tribe Called Red on tour, click here to look for a date near you.
