Short-lived early-'90s afrocentric hip hop crew from Howard University. The lyrics are pro-black, conscious, and somewhat militant, stylistically indebted to similar but better-known groups like X-Clan, Paris, or Public Enemy. Founding group member Zulu King Paris (A.K.A. Paris Lewis) went on to change his name to Malik Shabazz, and later became Chairman of the New Black Panther Party.
