Think of the icons of west coast gangsta rap and hip-hop and the Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. are one of the first names to come to mind. 

These legendary, hard hitting Samoan rap artists are from Carson, California.  They emerged on the hip-hop and rap scene in the era of legendary gangsta rapper Ice Cube and have been cutting tracks since 1988. The Compton ‘influence’ is still present in their music and their ‘swagger’.  It’s likely these are physically the biggest and heaviest rappers ever, and their music is equally heavy!

Along with the great albums and collaborations they have done over the years and their affiliation to the Mob Piru Bloods, the Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. has built a huge and faithful worldwide fan base, and they have toured the world from Europe to Japan and New Zealand.

On January 31, 2006 The Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. will release in the US ‘ANGRY SAMOANS’.  Mix the lyrics and harmonies of the Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. with rock/metal and you indeed have - ‘ANGRY SAMOANS’.

Being one of very few rap or hip-hop groups who play live music on stage, The Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. is unique in many ways. From hard core gangsta rap to rap mixed with rock music the Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. are truly one of a kind artists.

‘ANGRY SAMOANS’ is a unique blend of rap and rock/metal. Unlike their WEST KOSTA NOSTRA album, ‘ANGRY SAMOANS’ lets the rock in these Samoans out. The music is as hard hitting as their harmonies and vocals. If you’re a Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. fan this may be a side of them you have yet to experience.

‘ANGRY SAMOANS’ will be released in the US on January 31st, on First Kut Organization, a Division of Kent Entertainment Group Inc., and Samoan Mafia Records. If you can’t wait, the album is available now for early release at .

The Boo-Yaa Tribe, originally consisting of the Devoux brothers – Roscoe, Danny, Paul, Ted, Vincent and Donald-- are sons of a Baptist minister. Their skillz of surviving have brought them more street credibility than any other rap artists out there.  They all served prison sentences, but after one brother was shot dead they decided to concentrate on their music. They have ‘survived’ in the music industry with great music and great projects over the years. Donald has left the group but his brother Vincent has taken his place.

The brothers Devoux explained in an interview the meaning of the name Boo-Yaa Tribe. "Boo-Yaa, at that time was slang in the neighborhood for the sound of a shotgun, so we used the term to describe the impact of us on stage, blowing people away,” and T.R.I.B.E. = "Too Rough International Boo-Yaa Empire."

Be sure to check out Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E.’s ‘ANGRY SAMOANS’ January 31st and hear when rap meets metal and join the Boo-Yaa Empire.
