113 is a French hip hop group with African and Caribbean roots originating in North and West Africa and the island of Guadeloupe, formed in the Parisian suburb of Vitry-sur-Seine. Their most famous song is Tonton du Bled - Uncle from the "land" (bled in Maghrebi Arabic). The group's name comes from the name of the building in a housing estate where the members spent much of their youth, as well as a take on the US hip hop group 112.
