This Valentine's Day, give yourself the gift of classic hip-hop. In honor of the 25th anniversary of De La Soul's debut album 3 Feet High and Rising, the group is giving away its entire catalog for free on its website. Log on from Friday, February 14th at 11 a.m. EST until Saturday at noon.
"It's about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it," De La Soul member Posdnuous tells Rolling Stone. "Its been too long where our fans haven't had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them."
Expect to hear more from De La Soul in coming months including the album You're Welcome and Preemium Soul on the Rocks, an EP with beats from DJ Premier and Pete Rock. The group also has plans to work with unheard J Dilla beats. "Dilla was the Tupac of producers," says Posdnuous about the late producer. "He has so many unreleased things that no one has heard. His family knows how vital and important an ingredient his music was to our work."
