De La Soul

Jazz, R+B, and Soul meet Hip-Hop with a positive message. This stuff is the real deal.

It's Like That from The Grind Date

AOI Bionix is the second installment of the three disc Art Official Intelligence series. De La and Tommy boy records severed ties before the third installment was released. De La has continued to release quality material since the split. The Grind Date and Mission Impossible are both amazing. De La also did a release this year for Nike, Are You In?
Simply Havin' from Bionix

Copa Cabanga from AOI:Mosaic Thump, the first AOI release

3 is The Magic Number from the classic 80's album Three Feet High and Rising. A junior high favorite of mine.

Much More from The Grind Date... Warning, this chorus is infectious.

No No
