De La Soul
De La Soul’s anniversary show is a celebration of their debut 1989 album 3 Feet High And Rising, which is seen as a major contribution to the development of alternative hip-hop, with its focus on diverse sampling, and promotion of unity and goodwill. While the album is De La Soul’s largest commercial success, the group continued to release projects that were acclaimed by critics. This past Valentine’s Day, De La Soul made their entire catalog, pre-The Grind Date, available for free download. They have a few new projects in the works, including a new album You’re Welcome, a mixtape Smell the D.A.I.S.Y., and a new EP Premium Soul on the Rocks.
