When I got the call from J2K of Flosstradamus about contributing some music for the new De La Soul mix/project they were working on, OF COURSE I was down!!! De La is one of the dopest, most consistent groups in hip-hop still doing it. They've allowed their music to grow along side themselves without alienating their most diehard fans.
The project turned out to be a collab with Nike+ for their Original Run series. De La now joins LCD Soundsystem, A-Trak and a host of others who have been a part of the series.
You can peep a snippet of the track I co-produced in video above from 1:52 to 2:28 seconds in...
Get it on iTunes TODAY!!!
