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.
In the first of our Q&A sessions with Bali’s headliners, we speak to POS – aka Kelvin Mercer:
You can catch De La Soul at the Bali edition of Bestival. Limited presale tickets available here.
