Outkast aside, De La Soul is probably my favorite hip-hop group of all time. Call it a chicken-and-egg complex, but even now, when I listen to 3 Feet High and Rising I still remember pretty much everything about the day I bought that album: girl problems, algebra tests, etc. The esoteric quirks on each subsequent De La album are exactly the same in terms of stimulating elephant-like memories.
Mick Boogie and Co. have just dropped Le Da Soul: 20 Years of De La Soul with remakes of some of the classics De La has dropped for the past 20 years. Click the De La Soul sneaker below to download the mixtape:
