De La Soul Launches Kickstarter To Fund First Studio Album In 11 Years

de la soul studio album

The legendary trio De La Soul has taken the crowd-funding route to create their first studio album since 2004’s The Grind Date. The album will be made from sampling original recordings from De La Soul and the Rhythm Roots All-Stars exclusively. So, no lawsuits. They’ve already got some collaborators on the project, including Damon Albarn (of Blur/Gorillaz), 2 Chainz, Little Dragon, and David Byrne (of Talking Heads) with more collaborations to be announced as they happen.

The kickstarter is seeking $110,000 and has raised almost $72k of that already. If you want to contribute, or just want to read more about the project. Check them out here. Consider us excited.
