The Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E.: To Live And Die In L.A.

Paolo Hewitt, New Musical Express, 17 March 1990

The Devoux brothers have learned the rules of survival the hard way. In LA there are now 92,000 gang members, and mercy is not in their vocabulary. These mighty Samoans lived by the gun until the death of a brother forced them to speak a new way of living. And so THE BOO YAA TRIBE are now the Mafia of Rap. PAOLO HEWITT ducks the drive-bys in Carson.
