Update #2: The title of the new album is “and the Anonymous Nobody.”
Update: De La hit their Kickstarter goal in less than a day. The current total stands at $204,672. You can still donate for over a month. Trust us. It’ll be worth it.
The elder statesman of alternative hip-hop, De La Soul, are heading back into the studio for a new album, their first in 11 years, with a somewhat new approach, recruiting names like 2 Chainz, Damon Albarn, David Byrne, and Little Dragon. Like many other artists, they’re turning to their fans for direct support.
Pos, Dave, and Maseo are heading to Kickstarter to fund their latest LP, which doesn’t yet have a title or a release date. However, the reward tiers are completely off the chain. You can score yourself a digital copy of the album, head-shaped flash drives, CD and vinyl copies of the album, autographed composition notebooks with rhymes inside, and my personal favorites, shopping opportunities with each member; shoe shopping with Pos, toy shopping with Dave, and crate digging with Mase. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to donate to and work with some of the weirdest and most important MCs in the game today.
