YOU may have heard about De La Soul giving their entire back catalogue away for free over at their website –  wearedelasoul.com  – which is great news for hip hop fans, the rap curious and anyone who like music.

They’re doing it to celebrate next month’s 25th anniversary of their debut cut ‘3 Feet High And Rising’. It is only available for 25 hours, so make sure you’re on it (from 4pm onward).

Speaking to Rolling Stone about their decision, Posdnuos said: “It’s about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it. It’s been too long where our fans haven’t had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them.”

So what tracks should you look out for? Well, here’s ten of the best of De La Soul’s work. Enjoy!

 

Breakadawn

Classic laid-back De La. Overlooked by a few because, in short, it isn’t on their first album. Huge summer jam.

 

Eye Know

Taken from the legendary ‘3 Feet High…’, this is another grade-A Daisy Age cut designed for nice weather.

 

Oooh!

A comeback single of sorts, Oooh! featured the equally cartoonish Redman and after a while out, this record saw De La return to the clubs!

 

Ring Ring Ring

Sharing a hook with Curiosity Killed the Cat, and later, cribbed by Little Mix and Missy Elliot, this is De La Soul at their most infectious.

 

Say No Go

Another ‘3 Feet’ single.
