Listen to the new release from legendary group De La Soul, ‘The People’. Released at a time when tensions remain high in Ferguson, the group have this to say about the track: “The idea for the song came from a couple of samples, and the track’s vibe is earnest and has a pressing tone to it. The lyrics are commentaries of our struggles and successes, our weaknesses and strengths… the experiences… and trials and tribulations we have faced as human beings, a race, and as individuals.” Get into it.
