De La Soul Launch Kickstarter Campaign To Fund Forthcoming, Self-Sampling Record

Hip-hop’s holy grail doesn’t typically need any assistance in putting funds together for a new release. Unless, of course, you happen to be De La Soul, who have been in and out of courts over the years fighting for their samples and paying tooth and nail to clear them. Today, the Native Tongue heroes have launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring their next record to life; an ambitious Adrian Younge- styled production effort in which the crew intends to sample themselves and feature a dynamic set of guests, including Little Dragon, David Byrne, Damon Albarn, and 2 Chainz to name a few. Their campaign video explains that they have recorded an exclusive jam session with the helping hands of the aforementioned and are enlisting in their legion of devoted fans to help breathe some air into the project, so that we may hear the fruits of their labor. The record will serve as the official follow-up to their J Dilla-inspired and sampled Smell the Da.I.S.Y. mixtape, which was a donut-lover’s dream come true. You can hit the link below to donate to the cause, watch their promotional clip and learn about the myriad incentives they’ve provided for you to do so, including USBs full of content, vinyl pressing of the record and a whole lot more.
