DE LA SOUL RELEASES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ALBUM, AND THE ANONYMOUS NOBODY TODAY
The hip hop legends have also dropped a self-produced short documentary, We’re Still Here (Now) chronicling the creative process behind the project.
New York, NY (August 26, 2016) – Hip-hop may never be able to repay the debt it owes to De La Soul. When the trio of Kelvin “Plug Won” Mercer, David “Trugoy” Jolicoeur and Vincent “Maseo” Mason emerged in 1987 they empowered a new generation of MCs and fans to color outside the yellow lines of the asphalt jungle, charting a new course in the process.
The prolific hip hop group is ready to release their latest project, And The Anonymous Nobody via A.O.I. Records and Kobalt Label Services to their legion of loyal followers.
Fans helped De La Soul raise over $650,000, reaching the group’s goal of $110,000 within hours of launching the record breaking Kickstarter campaign last March. They documented their road to recording and releasing the album in the documentary We’re Still Here (Now) available HERE: http://smarturl.it/dls_minidoc.
The 17-track masterpiece is the group’s eighth studio album since their “game changing” debut in 1989 and features cameos from David Byrne, Usher, Jill Scott, David Byrne, 2 Chainz, Estelle and Damon Albarn (Blur/Gorillaz), and Little Dragon among others.
Snoop Dogg lends his skills to the project’s first single Pain, which was released on June 1.
And The Anonymous Nobody is available everywhere now. https://delasoul.lnk.to/andtheanonymousnobody
