Ey yo, if you haven’t seen this tape all over the internet so far you need to see an eye specialist. Because t”Semll The Da.I.S.Y.” featuring not only some classic De La Soul Verses but also J Dilla production has quite rightly been featured e v e r y w h e r e. It seems people have instantly forgiven De La for their last unlucky publicity stunt. How can you stay mad at those dudes, especially when they are releasing this Dilla gem for free?
Can I offer a tiny bit of constructive criticism, though? The title “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” is straight up ridiculously awful. No title would have been better than this one. Awful. Anyway, listen to the tape below or download it here. Check the rest of the article an embedded video stream of a little documentary on one of the Yancy boys or download it here vie bittorrent.
Recovering from the distributing fiasco that occurred with their 3 Feet High and Rising album, De La Soul is back with some fresh tracks and hopefully a much better system. You can download these songs via BitTorrent, a program which is easily downloadable from their website, and get the their album Smell the Da. I. S. Y. (which stands for Da Inner Soul of Yancy). But this album doesn’t just contain new songs. It’s more of a collection of a capellas with some old beats from J. Dilla.
