Grammy Award winning De La Soul is an American hip-hop
group formed in 1988 the village of Amityville on Long Island, New York. They are best known
for their eclectic sampling, quirky lyrics, and contributions to the evolution
of the jazz rap and alternative hip-hop subgenres.

De La Soul has often been synonymous with total artistic expression since the group released its stellar debut album, "Three Feet High and Rising" (1989). No matter how much hip-hop has grown over the years, or the commercial boom it has undergone, "Three Feet High and Rising" has always been considered one of the seminal albums in hip-hop history.
"De La Soul Is Dead" (1991) was just as creative in its follow-up response, as the group used the album to refuse being pigeonholed into any one style or image. Together, the yin-and-yang pair of albums was a marvel in sampling originality and lyrical complexity.
The subsequent album, "Buhloone Mindstate" (1993), was a "breakaway" album, a
much looser, more open-ended effort that found the group, for the first time,
exploring more soulful and musical terrain.

Beginning with "Stakes Is High," De La Soul entered a
new era. They began to produce many of their songs themselves and, in their own
words, started making music with an emphasis on connecting with fans on a more
ubiquitous level. "We wanted to perfect something else, focus more on rhymes and
on letting certain points be understood. If we make a beat, we want you to feel
what we're putting into it," explains Posdnuos.
Their music became more conversational, communal and began to
resonate with a new generation of hip-hop fans.
In 2019, De La Soul performed at Coachella along with others,
including The 1975,
Bad Bunny and
They have one platinum and two gold records, and one Grammy
Award. The group have sold more than 5 million albums in the US.
