Rap from Hobbema

I have to be honest....I'm not really that interested in rap, but this one caught me off guard. The video has all of the rap cliches and urban LA stereotypes that appear to be an accepted part of the genre. We all need a sense of community and belonging.
One for one....one for all......you live....you give

I found the following summary on the K-net site:
"War Party is an award-winning Cree hip-hop group from Hobbema, Alberta. Founded in 1995 by Rex Smallboy, the group won the Canadian Aboriginal Music Award for Best Rap Album in 2001, and was nominated again in 2002 and 2003. As well, they were the first First Nations rap group to have a music video aired on Much Music. "
