De La Soul

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 1987, a trio known as De La Soul formed from Long Island, NY roots and changed the landscape of Hip Hop as we knew it. Now, for over 20 years they have rocked us with their De La songs full of inscrutable samplings, whimsically irreverent lyrics, social commentary, light rhythm and laid back rhymes. They have gained respect within and outside the hip hop community with their contributions to rap, as well as jazz, funk, soul and alternative genres. Not only are their musical innovations acclaimed and respected worldwide, but they paved a path for many alternative rap groups to come after them. Today, De La continue to the tour globe and released their most recent studio album “And The Anonymous Nobody”, in 2016.
