Book De La Soul
Hip Hop Group
De La Soul is a group for the ones who still remember hip-hop without guns and golden teeth, hip-hop the way it was at the very beginning of its history. Kelvin Mercer (Posdnous), David Jude Jolicoeur (Trugoy) and Vincent Mason (Maseo) are rappers who are constantly blowing people’s minds away with the rap shading to jazz, funk, country, and alternative. Their rap, has even gained a “hippie” name because of the performers’ positivity.
The outstanding achievement of De La Soul was the creation of a music collective called “Native Tongues” uniting hip-hoppers such as A Tribe Called Quest, Black Sheep, Queen Latifah and The Jungle Brothers under one idea- singing something that would later be called “conscious hip-hop” which speaks about cultural, political and philosophical issues. The De La Soul guys have been born conscious in that way.
Having started in 1989 they are still on stage with 8 albums under their belt. The first one “Three Feet High and Rising”, released in 1989, had made De La Soul famous everywhere. It is well-known for the singles “Me Myself and I”, “The Magic Number”, “Buddy”, and “Eye Know” that have been keeping the album on the list of the most successful albums for almost 26 years!
