December 1, 2014

Listen to the new release from legendary group De La Soul, ‘The People’ (featuring Chuck D). Released at a time when tensions remain high following recent events in Ferguson, the Hip Hop trio had 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 ‘The People’, below.
