#30thAnniversary – De La Soul “De La Soul Is Dead”

First, we want to start this article by saying that we are aware of the situation between Tommy Boy Records and De La Soul. If you don’t know and want to learn why you can’t listen to your favorite album from the group on your streaming service of choice, you can read this Instagram post from August 2019.

We definitely sided with Posdnuos, Dave aka Trugoy and Maseo, but we couldn’t wrap our head around doing a review of almost every 1991 hip hop LP’s and leave aside what is easily one of our favorite records of that year. So please, go stream their albums released later on, starting with the excellent 2004 “The Grind Date” or 2016 “and the Anonymous Nobody“, if you want to directly support the artists!

What more can be said about this masterpiece? You can find all kinds of reviews around the web, talking about how they left the “D.A.I.S.Y.” age behind or how Prince Paul was at the top of his game, blending close to 100 samples seamlessly, from the most obvious rock song to more obscure 70s soul-funk bands. What we want to put to the forefront here is the music, so stream the album, watch the videos, also discover tons of remixes and a special mix below and witness greatness again!
