De La channels Wu-Tang Clan on their first new release since their 2004 LP The Grind Date. Look out for a video to drop shortly and expect more new music from the trio as they prep their new LP, You’re Welcome, due out this Fall.
Says Pos about the record:
“I’ve always loved the ‘Intro’ on Disc Two of Wu-Tang Forever – this erie sample with no beat, that they only talked over,” De La Soul’s Posdnuos tells Rolling Stone. “I stumbled on the original sample while crate digging one day, took it straight to the lab and added drums. The feel is definitely gritty, hard and sounds like a Wu record, so out of inspirational respect, we included featuring ‘The Spirit of the Wu’ in the song title.”
