For all the De La Soul fans...
Rolling Stone reports that De La Soul is giving away their entire catalog for free on their official website in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their debut album 3 Feet High and Rising. The songs will be available until tomorrow at noon ET. Here are highlights of an interview with Posdnuos of the group:
On why they're letting fans have free access: "It's about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it. It's been too long where our fans haven't had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them."
On the difficulty of making their music available on digital platforms: "It's been a trying journey. We've been blessed to be in the Library of Congress, but we can't even have our music on iTunes. We've been working very hard to get that solved."
On working with the late producer J Dilla: "Dilla was the Tupac of producers. He has so many unreleased things that no one has heard. His family knows how vital and important an ingredient his music was to our work."
