How do you follow up giving you entire discography away for free online? Well, New York hip-hop icons De La Soul found a way….by releasing a full mixtape, like none other. This album entitled “Smell the DA.I.S.Y.” is a collection of tracks featuring De La over Dilla beats. Nuff Said. Besides putting together an great album, De La looks to bring attention to the J Dilla Foundation and its mission to bring funding to music programs in inner-city schools.
Pos, Maseo and Dave also dropped an “audio letter” where they discuss the project, and a full stream of the entire album, which we have below. Or you can download it through their special BitTorrent Bundle which also includes the Still Shinning Dilla documentary,
We also added a video of De La Soul performing their Gorillaz collaboration “Feel Good Inc.” during Damon Albarn’s set at The FADER FORT Presented by Converse.
