Homegrown Afro-futurism with a west coast vibe is the best way to describe Long Beach’s art-rap collective The Natives. Led by frontman and apple cider aficionado Nativethoughts. Their music is a prime example of San Kofa knowing where you’re going because you know where you’ve been. With rhymes that hearken back to the golden age of hip hop with a deep foothold into what is to be the future. Social commentary through Immigrant eyes. Descendants of the Native Tongue Posse. La River rats. Long Beach Natives with a 3rd World perspective. They are currently working on their debut album “Last of the Natives” through Porch Party Records.
