De La Soul Is Not Dead (Documentary)

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

Here’s a great way to spend 30 minutes on a Thursday afternoon. The new De La Soul Is Not Dead documentary from Mass Appeal features commentary from Prince Paul, Dante Ross, Monica Lynch of Tommy Boy and of course Dave, Posdonous and Maseo, and it takes a look at how three outcasts from Amityville, Long Island emerged as a legendary Rap trio.

The principal players discuss how Paul, who had music industry experience from his work with Stetsasonic, nurtured the guys throughout their creative process and encouraged them to embrace their groundbreaking approach to Hip-Hop.

The main theme of the doc is the group’s evolution over the course of their first three albums and how the public perception of them as the “hippie rappers” lead to the De La Soul Is Dead LP. Also covered are the sample clearance issues that haunt them to this day, their rebirth with the Stakes Is High album and the new Kickstarter driven project and the Anonymous Nobody, which just topped the Billboard Rap charts.
