“Nobody” Is Smiling. De La Soul Takes The #1 Spot On The Rap Charts

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.

In 1989, De La Soul’s debut 3 Feet High and Rising earned the #1 spot on the R&B charts. The rankings helped solidify an introduction to a career that would shape the sound and style of Hip-Hop over the next 25 years. Thanks to …and the Anonymous Nobody, the trio’s eighth album, they are at #1 yet again.

Funded by fans in an early 2015, $600,000-plus crowd-sourcing 33-day campaign, the A.O.I. Records release topped the Rap charts–a system that was not in place when Posdnuos, Dave (f/k/a Trugoy), and Maseo released their first LP. More than 11,000 fans pledged support to the Long Island, New York Hip-Hop veterans.

In doing so, De La Soul edged out Young Thug’s Jeffrey, a Warner Bros. Records release from one of the reigning stars of the 2010s. This album is the third D.L.S. project to debut in the Top 15 of the charts (#12)—and the first since 2000’s Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump (#9), which was distributed by major label.

…and the Anonymous Nobody features Pete Rock, 2 Chainz, Snoop Dogg, Usher, and others. This is the trio’s first official album in more than 12 years.
