De La Soul Reunites With J Dilla’s Producerial Essence On A Dope New Song (Audio)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

When De La Soul releases ANY new song, it’s usually a stop-the-presses moment for the Heads. However, learning that Amityville, Long Island’s finest hopped on an unheard J Dilla track to make a song praising the late Jay Dee and his mom, Ma Dukes, is especially incredible. With the radio show concept, the punched in samples, and reworked classic verses (and a D.A.I.S.Y. Age mention to boot), “Dilla Plugged In” is a benchmark De La moment.

This will appear on Smell The D.A.I.S.Y., a new project pairing Posdnous, Maseo and Dave with J Dilla’s work, coming soon.
