The old school hip-hop group De La Soul just keeps dropping more and more music these days and whether its new, or old its always pleasing to hear some quality hip-hop music for a change. Keeping that in mind, youll never guess what (or with whom) theyve been causing mischief with lately. First hint, its a type of primate. Yeah, you guessed that right; its no one other than the Gorillaz!
According to rapper Posdnuos (via NME.com), De La Soul just finished recording a few tracks for the new Gorillaz album, tentatively entitled Plastic Beach. The group had previously worked with the devilish duo on the single, Feel Good Inc. and this time around theyve guest starred on two new tracks titled, Sloped Tropics and Electric Shock! Unfortunately, Posdnuos had little to say about the new tracks themselves, but he did mention that the new record sounds amazing. To me, quite honestly, it sounds better than the last album.
Now, that thats all finished De La Soul hopes to recruit Gorillaz mastermind, Damon Albarn on the band’s new album, Youre Welcome which is set for release in early 2010. While there is currently little information available about either of these records, it can be noted that De La Souls first single will be We Are (For The People) and will feature guest vocals from Chuck D and hollywoods favorite Flav. Come on everybody, lets hear it for Flavor Flav! Seriously, what more can you ask for: Gorillaz, plus De La Soul and Flavor Flav equals awesome explosions of love all over the place. Lets just hope, for our own sanity, that one of these new tracks leaks soon.
