Hailing from south coastal England myself, I had nothing in common as a teenager with De La, who come from LI, New York. Long Island sounds like my kind of place, as illustrated in De La’s album “Stakes Is High”.
I guess Say No Go was a political music video and Postdnoous, Masio & Trugoy … that’s what I recall anyway, from watching MTV and seeing them rant about the Regan administration, Maggie Thatcher and all that late 80’s cold war ending shit I seemed to notice on the BBC news, I was thirteen years old in 1989, so I’m a child of the 90’s really!
Biased to the max as I am, De La Soul are, after all is said and done, in my humble opinion the best and most original Hip Hop act around. Native Tongues Posse, consisting of De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah, Monie Love, DJ Red Alert, Africa Bambaataa et al.
Love it . This is simple, classic, ‘old skool’ rap tunes. PLUR PLUR PLUR.
