De La Soul To Release First Single In Nine Years


Hip hop kings De La Soul will release a “new music video each month”.

This is big news. It’s been nine years since De La Soul last released a single, that being “Rock Co.Kane Flow” featuring our overlord DOOM but the legends are back, according to story from Rolling Stone. The track, entitled “Get Away (feat. the spirit of Wu-Tang)”, will also have an accompanying video as part of a planned series of monthly releases through YouTube and the like.

“I think it’s a great record to reintroduce ourselves with. It’s pretty much reflecting on the state of hip-hop at this moment. Everything is redundant. Everything sounds the same. No real lyrical content. Everybody’s just doing business, not really creating.” – Maseo, taken from an interview for Rolling Stone.

If you’ve forgotten what their last single sounded like, stream it below. But we suspect you haven’t because you never forget greatness, right?
