De La Soul will be releasing Smell The D.A.I.S.Y. on Wednesday, March 26th. The project is a homage to late producer extraordinaire James D Yancey, known worldwide as J Dilla. “Vocabulary Spills” is an example of the spectacular awesomely awesomeness that is certain to be this mixtape. The trio is planning on dropping one more mixtape (Premium Soul On The Rocks), produced by Pete Rock & DJ Premier, before releasing their full-length album You’re Welcome.
“You cry keepin it real, you should try keepin it right.” just was raw when quoted today as it was all them years ago……
De La Soul is fresh off of trying their best to break the internet. Giving away their catalog (sans Grind Date) for free to build up anticipation for their new album appropriately titled You’re Welcome. The gifts just keep rolling too. Now we learn that they plan on dropping two mixtapes before the album drops Smell The D.A.I.S.Y. (Production by J Dilla) and Premiem Soul On The Rocks (Produced by DJ Premier & Pete Rock). This isn’t the year of the Horse, it’s the year of the De La.
“Dilla Plugged In” is the first track from Smell The Daisy and serves as an ode of sorts to the legendary Producer and his Ma Dukes.
