Tribal Magz Still Doing It Tribal

Entering on to the UK Funky scene in early 2009 with Tribal Man Skank which sampled Lil Silva’s Seasons, Tribal Magz has continued to face all the tribulations thrown his way and has finally released the long awaited album which is now a mixtape titled ‘So We’re Doing It Tribal’ showcasing all of his tracks thus far.

Including the Tribal Man Skank remix featuring Gracious K, a track only released via YouTube and the video shortly removed; many didn’t get a chance to hear it. At the time, released as a remix, it lacked creativity so it’s time had passed, but in hindsight the track could’ve been an entertaining if exclusively performed as a PA to bring the audience something new as Migraine Skank and Tribal Man Skank started to exhaust their time, becoming repetitive.

Feeling Funky produced by KG, was a track generally favoured when released, however it had it’s own experience of turmoil with release as the video has to be shot two times, the finishing product disappointing. ‘So We’re Doing It Tribal’ includes both the original and remix feat Sway which was previously only available via Sway’s mixtape. Many ear drums haven’t been graced with this adaptation, even though it was openly appreciated by those who were lucky enough to be a recipient. Some even claimed it was better.

The mixtape overall boasts a number of other collaborations with Tribal Magz including Haynzy, Dymunds, Slix (Ruff Squad) and Lioness not to mention ‘Back 2 Funk’ which has Tribal Man, Flirta D, KIG, Gracious K, Dotstar and Funky Dee all on one track! Does Tribal Magz wish to share his spotlight or is he bewildered about having to stand in it alone? Either way the young man who has always marketed himself as an artist has continued to push through declined clearance, delayed videos and many management changes to produce more than has been achieved by a number of his peers.

UK Funky Mic Tribute

Wasn’t too sure what to think when I heard this track for the first time. Riskgo is an MC that is respected amongst his peers so I couldn’t really understand the need for him to lay down this track. Although I can see how he felt he was pushing the scene forward by collaborating everybodies lyrics together.

The one thing that it did bring to light to me however……

“How many bleeding MCs does this scene really need!!!??”

Not to mention that there are a few that got missed out even though there are 25 names!! I will not list those forgotten as wish to not offend anybody by missing them out AGAIN, but one of them hosts the radio show of the most recognised DJ in the scene, so I don’t know how he got forgotten…..

Anyway, if you’re feeling the track, Riskgo is also giving it as a free download which can be found here: Riskgo – Mic UK Funky Tribute
