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. You can also watch one of my personal favourite De La Soul (featuring Redman) – Oooh below.

I have a brand new promotional skit video from De La Soul’s Plug 1 and Plug 2 from their forthcoming album “First Serve” called “We Made It”. The skit is synonymous with De La Soul fans, who will be more than familiar with the likes of “The Goon Time Mixtape” and of course “”Mrs Whitter”as well. The new album “First Serve” comes from Plug 1 (Pos) and Plug 2 (Dave’s) motto “First come, first serve, get what you deserve” and will be available to buy via Duck Down Records on April 2nd 2012. Watch out for plenty of promotion leading up to the release of De La Soul’s “First Serve” however you can watch the brand new video from Plug 1 and Plug 2 – We Made It Skit on the youtube player below.
