De La Soul


Anyone nostalgic for the “D.A.I.S.Y. Age” might wonder what happened to this Long Island crew, and they’ve taken some creative twists in the new millennium. From a Gorillaz cameo to mixtapes to 2004’s underrated The Grind to a 44-minute track for Nike/iTunes, they’ve found numerous creative outlets. They promise that the third in their “Art Official Intelligence” series is still coming soon; we still need them, as much as their LI neighbors Public Enemy, to outlive gangsta music. With Buckshot of Boot Camp Clik.
