De La Soul has still got it. The rap legends dropped a new single titled “”Get Away” to celebrate 25 years in the game. They plan on releasing a new song a month as they gear up for the release of their upcoming album You’re Welcome. The track features samples from Wu Tang’s 1997 album Forever. Posdnous talks about the song with Rolling Stone:
“I’ve always loved the ‘Intro’ on Disc Two of Wu-Tang Forever – this erie sample with no beat, that they only talked over. 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.”
The track is pretty dope, and shows that the trio hasn’t missed a step. It will be interesting to see what they come up with when their album drops this fall. Enjoy the track below.
