It’s been almost four years since Dres of Black Sheep and Jarobi White of A Tribe Called Quest ushered in the next wave of the Native Tongue movement with their debut group project, Speed Of Life. With the names of their respective groups cemented in the annals of hip-hop history, they made the bold step to form a duo called evitaN (Native backwards) and brought along fellow legends Craig G, Sadat X, Rah Digga and Havoc of Mobb Deep along for the ride.
Now they are back in the groove with the new video and single “Higher,” produced by P. Locke. Over grungy guitars and dusty drums the two trade verses dripping with the timeless bravado that made them fan favorites. The video, shot on the rooftops of the Big Apple, was directed by Mr. Complex of the Polyrhythm Addicts. Watch it above and purchase the single on their Bandcamp page HERE.
