De La Soul – “and the Anonymous Nobody”

De La Soul is the legendary hip-hop trio hailing from Long Island, NY who are some of the pioneers of jazz rap. Their album 3 Feet High & Rising is personally one of my favorite albums of all time, and I have loved these guys music for years. This album was funded entirely through kickstarter in 24 hours after it was announced. The premise of the album was an album full of samples; but of the group’s own original music to avoid copyright infringements, and DAMN did that work well in their favor. This album has tracks that are jazzy, yet contemporary so it can be enjoyed by hip-hop fans of all ages. If you haven’t given this album a listen yet, I highly suggest checking it out.
