New Tunes: De La Soul ft. Chuck D – “The People”

Sensing the timing is right for socially conscious rhymes to be absorbed, De La Soul release a collab with Chuck D. The Grind Date album is scheduled to arrive in 2015.

De La says:

“Originally ‘The People’ was supposed to drop in June, around the same time the Chuck D/Hot 97/Rosenberg situation took place. We chose to hold off and not add fuel to any fires,” Trugoy says. “Our next aim was for a Black Friday release. Coincidentally, the Ferguson tragedy took place and now the non-indictment verdict. Somehow this song was destined to be a part of something more than just dropping a joint. We hope it will lend itself to something positive in these difficult times.”
