Hip-Hop legends De La Soul have teamed up with Heavy D from Public Enemy for their new single “The People”. While I give you a second to digest the awesomeness of that first line, prepare for more as the single is available as a free download. The song originally was due to be released in June, but was held back due to the Chuck D/Hot 97/Peter Roseberg situation. Please enjoy the free music as you listen to De La Soul – The People below.
PREVIOUS | Imperial and Kinetik – Just Another Day
It’s always a treat to hear new sounds from UK producer Imperial, and this time we have a remix of the classic De La Soul track “Itzsoweezee”. Hip-Hop Kings fans will be aware of Imperial for his work with UK rapper Kinetik, and his previous remixes of “Diamonds from Sierra Leone” by Kanye West and “Linguistics” by Jurassic 5. Imperial also provided the exclusive content for the “25 Facts About Imperial and Kinetik – Pencils Not Pistols” project that was posted towards the end of 2013.

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.
As the legendary De La Soul prepare to reach the 25th year anniversary of their classic album “3 Feet High and Rising”, it has been announced that on Friday 14th February, the ENTIRE discography will be made available for free download to fans. Madness I hear you say? “It’s about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it,” De La Soul member Posdnuous tells Rolling Stone. “Its been too long where our fans haven’t had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them.” Check the official De La Soul website (listed above) for the download information.
