De La Soul x NAS = God It


Oh man this track is siiiiiiiick! … I can’t believe they are giving this away for free. Oh, I see.

“Cause you gone’ get hooked on this verbal dope we cook, thas how it’s gone’ be, baby!”

True. One listen, you will get hooked. The beat, the music and every single verse is instantly addicting. They still “God It“, baby boy!

One of the reasons for De La Soul’s recent mega-success at connecting with fans is the personal approach they took on their recent Kickstarter campaign, which has brought in half a million dollars in support so far. So I’m just going to let them tell it.

What’s up y’all,

While busy at work, we also like to play. This song is not on the new album, but an indication of good music to come.  The song was produce by G_Force and you may recognize our featured guest. Get the song for free here.

We’re still in Atlanta, GA recording and it sounds amazing!  We can’t wait to get this new album to you. There’s only 10 days left to support our Kickstarter campaign so if you haven’t done so, please pre-ordered the album now by clicking the link below. 

Thank you, we love y’all!

We Are De La Soul

De La Soul was my favorite group when they first came out. Other groups fought for my #1 spot over the years, but they became my favorite group a second time 10 years later. Now in 2015, they are my favorite group again. If you haven’t pre-ordered their new album on Kickstarter, what are you waiting for?
