Trybesmen (also known as Da Trybe) is an African hip-hop group from Lagos, Nigeria. The Nigerian newspaper NEXT describes them as "one of the pioneers of hip hop in Nigeria"[1] and the BBC called the group "legendary" in 2005.[2]

The three original members, known as Eldee, Kaboom and Freestyle, first met in 1994 in Lagos.[3] Their first album, L.A.G Style Volume 1., was released in 1999 to positive reviews.[4] Their hits included "Trybal Marks" and "Shake Bodi."[5] Two members, eLDee and Freestyle, recorded solo albums after the group broke up.[1] They reunited to perform at an awards ceremony in Abuja in 2009.[6]
