The Jungle Brothers are an American hip hop group that pioneered the fusion of jazz and house into hip hop music. The group began performing in the mid-1980s and released their first album, Straight out the Jungle, in 1988. With Afrocentric lyrics and innovative beats, the Jungle Brothers were critically acclaimed and were among the founding members of the influential Native Tongues collective.
