De La Soul continue the march to the release of “And The Anonymous Nobody” with another single, “Greyhounds” featuring Usher. In the De La storytelling tradition it’s a tale of a young lady taking her dreams to a new city on the bus and a young man moving weight from state to state.
“We were taking a break from recording to drive & get some food,” Pos explains. Along the way we passed the bus station, and someone in the car in a tour guide voice said ‘and to the left is the bus station where people come from everywhere to get their piece of Hollywood.’ I immediately thought that would be a great song having the entry & departure point of the story be the Greyhound bus. A few weeks later, music from the jam sessions presented itself as a perfect fit for that subject, birthing the song.”
