De La Soul

  • Put your hands together for the one, the only De La Soul, hip-hop legends with a difference.

    Formed in Long Island in 1987 De La Soul landed in a hip-hop landscape almost exclusively concerned with all things Gangsta and immediately brought a breath of fresh air to the genre with their incredible debut 3 Feet High and Rising, an album of startling originality that carried messages of love, positivity and peace that were worlds away from the misogynistic leanings of the rap fraternity of the time.

    For the last three decades De La Soul have continued to push boundaries, quickly becoming one of the most influential forces in alternative hip hop, through their own raft of albums to their work with Gorrilaz, De La Soul remain at the cutting edge of everything that is creative, spiritual and super cool about hip-hop today.
