Get Ready For a Lot of New De La Soul Music. A Mixtape and 2 Albums Are Coming.
De La Soul crashed the Internets (or at least their site) last month when they released their entire catalog for free for 25 hours to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album, 3 Feet High and Rising. In fact, according to Billboard Magazine, the reaction was so positive the group has decided to release a slew of new music, starting with a mixtape in the next week or so and 2 new albums by year’s end. Below is an excerpt from the article, as well as a link to the full story. 2014 is shaping up to be a great one for Hip-Hop.
Here’s an excerpt from Billboard:
Of the new two albums the group is working on, [Trugoy] said one will be sample-based and one will be recorded with a live band, Los Angeles’ Rhythm Roots Allstars. The mixtape will include some new songs as well as some reworked material.
“But in a De La fashion, it’s just not a mixtape with 11 songs,” Jolicoeur said. “There are skits and things. It’s cool. That’s coming out in about a week, and hopefully God willing more De La music.
