24-7 SPYZ

24-7 Spyz (pronounced “twenty-four-seven spies”) are a crossover band from the South Bronx, New York City, formed in 1986. The fact that they were African-Americans playing variations of heavy metal and punk along with rhythm and blues, soul, and hip-hop led critics to compare them to bands such as Living Colour, Bad Brains, and Fishbone. The band is best known for mixing soul, funk, reggae, and R&B with heavy metal and punk music.
