De La Soul “Get Away” Feat. The Spirit Of Wu (video)

There isn’t much fucking with this right here. This shit right heeeeeere? This is hip hop. De La hits you with that straight up, no nonsense, cut the BS rappin out that we love to here from these hip hop purist. Lines like

“And some may believe that they a leader young fella you a two liter/simply water weight drowning out the sauce/this lesson is aligned with an underground cause….”

From Rolling Stone:

“I’ve always loved the ‘Intro’ on Disc Two of Wu-Tang Forever – this erie sample with no beat, that they only talked over,” De La Soul’s Posdnuos said.”I stumbled on the original sample while crate digging one day, took it straight to the lab and added drums. The feel is definitely gritty, hard and sounds like a Wu record, so out of inspirational respect, we included featuring ‘The Spirit of the Wu’ in the song title.”

Damn. I cant wait for the new album “You’re Welcome” coming this fall. Until then you can catch them on the “Kings Of The Mic Tour” with LL Cool J, Public Enemy and Ice Cube
