iTunes Review

Back in 1989, the Long Island trio De La Soul changed the game with its classic Prince Paul–produced debut, 3 Feet High and Rising. In the 20+ years since, it's released a ton of great music and maintained its legendary status. On First Serve, Dave and Pos make a welcome return to the microphones for a concept album set to whimsical, multi-genre throwback beats courtesy of the French production team 2 & 4 (Chokolate and Kahlid). Adapting the alter egos of aspiring emcees Jacob Barrow and Deen Whitter, they give us a musical story of two young rappers and their eventful journey from the basement to the charts. They bring us a dozen dope tracks full of storytelling verses and unpredictable yet consistently funky beatwork, interspersed with several quality skits. Standouts joints include "Small Disasters," "We Made It," "Clash Symphony," and the rollicking blues-rock jam "The Book of Life."

A new De La album drops and I am the first to say a thing? A truly sad state of the world. No review from me, listen and make your own statements.


where's the rest of de la's albums

Thanks for bringing back hip hop

hip hop has been suffering severely for a while. it's good the hear one of the originators of the genre bringing it back to how it should be. the jazz and sampling is back without the lame voice effects. thanks plug 1 and 2, it's great to hear from you again!

Somewhere between a band and a concept, First Serve features two-thirds of the legendary hip-hop crew De La Soul -- Plug 1 (Dave) and Plug 2 (Posdnous) -- along with two French producers, Chokolate and Khalid. The project was born at a chance meeting after a De La Soul gig in Paris. A concept album concerning a fictional, rising hip-hop act was discussed, then Pos and Dave assumed new alter egos -- Deen and Jacob -- while Chokolate and Khalid began working on beats.
