De La Soul feat. The Spirit of the Wu – Get Away


To be honest, I’ve found post-Prince Paul De La Soul to be hit and miss. They basically lost 90% of their sense of humor and became Mad Rappers with sometimes questionable beats. That being said, this new song has ESG‘s “UFO” on it, so it’s good money.

It’s interesting how unloved De La is, though many years of half-questionable releases couldn’t have helped. Who even listened to that Plug 1 Plug 2 album on Duck Down? Anyway, this is… pretty good, a little dull but in the context of an album it might work.

De La is the most unappreciated group of all time. They’ve continued to grow and change, and they always stay dope. Grown man rap.

Oh, I agree Big Spice… They’ve had conceptual ups and downs but have kept moving forward and thoughtful. Except for rap’s eternal juvenile complex, I’m puzzled why there’s not more De La love…

… Tho’ we could say the same about Public Enemy even! People here fall over trying to excuse 20 years of Kool G. Rap mediocrity and fake “mafia rap” silliness while ignoring the heat Chuck is still capable for, if not a whole album, at least 4-5-6 songs at a time.

hit and miss?! Most consistent crew out there. Who has repped this long since ’88 with so much flavour?! Go post so more Milano in lipgloss.
