It is official, De La Soul is not dead.
After scoring another number 1 spot on top of Billboard’s rap charts for their fan-funded album the Anonymous Nobody, a new 30-minute documentary about De La Soul has been released.
There are newly released clips presenting the Long Island trio’s early beginnings, when they hung out in high school during the 1980s and when they met with former Stetsasonic member Prince Paul.
De La decided to leave their longtime label Tommy Boy Records after the release of their 2001 album AOI: Bionix and created a Kickstarter campaign to fund the Anonymous Nobody album. Perhaps surprisingly, the group reached $600,000 in a matter of hours when they only asked for $110,000 initially.
And the Anonymous Nobody album can be purchased on iTunes.
