Flow Tribe and Mannie Fresh hit the roller rink in the hilarious visual for their funky offering “You Know What It’s About.” Produced by the Cash Money legend, the song marks the first single off the Tribe’s forthcoming album BOSS.
Launched in 2004, the New Orleans-bred band — comprised of K.C. O’Rorke (vocals, trumpet), John-Michael Early (harmonica, washboard, vocals, keyboard), Russell Olschner (drums), Chad Penot (bass, vocals), Bryan Santos (guitar, timbales), and Mario Palmisano (guitar) — infuse R&B, soul, rock and hip-hop into their lively jams.
“Flow Tribe is a great bunch of New Orleans guys who have that funkiness to them,” fellow NOLA native Fresh tells Billboard over e-mail. “Working with them was a pleasure and I see a lot great things coming from them now and down the line. We had a great time working on this current project and I see it doing Big things! (Everything BIG).”
Adds K.C. of Flow Tribe: “Collaborating with Mannie Fresh on BOSS was a dream experience. He is someone who the band always held in the highest regard for his incredible musicality and production skills. He brought out the best in Flow Tribe and pushed our music to the next level. It’s a beautiful thing when New Orleans’ musicians get together and cook up that fire!”
