De La Soul Song List
De La Soul came together when its members (Posdnuos (Kelvin Mercer), Trugoy the Dove (David Jude Jolicoeur), and Pasemaster Mase (Vincent Mason) met while attending high school in the late 1980’s. The group’s demo tape landed them a deal with Tommy Boy Records, and in 1989, De La Soul’s debut album, 3 Feet High and Rising, was released. Very quickly, De La Soul became part of the New York-based sound which included artists like A Tribe Called Quest and Queen Latifah.
De La Soul is Dead came next in 1991, but with its darker sound it didn’t attract the same level of attention as the band’s debut album. Nevertheless, the album spawned the hit "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey),” and when Buhloone Mindstate was released in 1993, it was met with positive reviews. A series of albums followed for the rest of the decade and into the new millennium: Stakes is High, Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump, AOI: Bionix, and The Grind Date. In 2005, De La Soul earned their first Grammy for their collaboration with Gorillaz on “Feel Good Inc.,” and in the following year, they released Hip-Hop Mixtape. 2008 saw De La Soul join up with Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, and The Pharcyde on the Rock the Bells tour. Most recently, De La Soul has released De La Soul’s Plug 1 & Plug 2 presents… First Serve, and they have plans for future album releases and tours.
De La Soul’s legacy in American hip hop has been its contributions for jazz and alternative hip hop subgenres and its creative lyrics and skillful sampling. They are said to have influenced such notable hip hop artists as The Black Eyed Peas, Mos Def, and Camp Lo.
