De La Soul WEBSITE | http://www.wearedelasoul.com/
News reached us today that De La Soul will be releasing a highly limited edition vinyl (only 100) copies of an instrumental album of “Smell The Da.I.S.Y”. The vinyl will contain all 11 of the Smell The Da.I.S.Y instrumentals, plus one never-heard J Dilla beat. The idea behind the limited release is to “resemble the limited amount of beat tapes that Dilla would send out to artists like Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Common, Mos Def, Busta, and De La.” Furthermore, there will be no information to which stores will have the vinyl, so crate diggers get ready! You can look at the De La Soul website (link above) for clues.
