Introducing The TRIBE

"The TRIBE has huge or better yet colossal ideas to change the Namibian hip hop genre, and the whole industry forever"-Stitch
The TRIBE a Hip Hop/Rap group consisting of arguably the best MCs in Namibia, who happen to be from different tribes. The members of the group are self-proclaimed illest rapper K.K (of Damara//Herero decent), MC RAY (of Setswana/Xhosa decent), outspoken J-Black (of Herero decent) and Baller-holics rapper Stitch (of Coloured/wambo decent). Signed under T.M.G (Tribe Music Group) owned by the four rappers. Currently working to find their collective voice as a group, The TRIBE has recorded their first single "Extraordinary Forever", their upcoming E.P "W.A.T.T (We Are The Tribe)" followed by their album "Ordinary Is Boring". What have they achieved as solo artists? Take a look:

Stitch has been in the rap game since 2008, when he started out in a group with Quido and  dropped their first mixtape "Hustlementals".
