The influential hip-hop group has made Valentine’s Day feel like Christmas all over again. De La Soul is celebrating the 25th anniversary of their debut album 3 Feet High and Rising by making their entire catalogue available to download for free until Noon on Saturday, Feb. 15.
De La Soul’s music is not fully licensed—which presented a challenge to fans that want to download their music easily through a distributor like iTunes. With today’s free-for-all, fans will be able to conveniently download as much of their music as they want. “It’s about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it,” Posdnuos said in a recent interview. “It’s been too long where our fans haven’t had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them.”
The release of the discography is just a brief look into future projects you’ll see from De La Soul. The hip-hop trio hasn’t released a full-length album since 2004, so they are ready to release some new songs to their website in a few weeks from their highly anticipated new album titled You’re Welcome. The album should be available in its entirety before the summer arrives. De La Soul will also release a six-song EP titled Premium Soul on the Rocks featuring beats from DJ Premier and Pete Rock. You can download the entire collection here for the small price of your email address.
