Influential hip hop group De La Soul have put up their entire catalog of music for free download to celebrate the upcoming 25 year anniversary of their debut album 3ft High and Rising. Posdnuos said about the giveaway:
“It’s about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it. It’s been too long where our fans haven’t had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them.”
The reason the group’s music has been unavailable for the most part is due to the fact they used many unlicensed samples in their music. This has limited their ability to sell their music on a digital platform. However, this release is just the first of many to come for the hip hop group. In a few weeks they will begin to upload songs to their website. Next month you can expect to see a 6 song EP from them entitled Preemium Soul on the Rocks, and expect to see a their first full length album since 2004 called You’re Welcome out this summer.
The free download of De La Soul’s music is currently running and will be going until 12 p.m. EST on Saturday February 15th, so hurry up and grab your copy now.
