De La Soul feat. Chuck D – The People [Stream x Download]

Old School legends De La Soul and Chuck D link up for a new track called “The People”. You can download it for free at De La Soul’s website. The idea for the song came from a couple of samples, and the track’s vibe is earnest and has a pressing tone to it. The lyrics are commentaries of our struggles and successes, our weaknesses and strengths… the experiences… and trials and tribulations we have faced as human beings, a race, and as individuals. Lyrically Chuck brings a sense of authority and urgency. The power in his voice demands your attention. With Chuck on the track this is a dream come true for us. Originally “The People” was suppose to drop in June around the same time the Chuck D/Hot 97/Peter Rosenberg situation took place. We chose to hold off and not add fuel to any fires. Our next aim was for a Black Friday release. Coincidentally the Ferguson tragedy took place, and more recently the non-indictment verdict. Somehow this song was destined to be a part of something more than just dropping a joint. We hope it will lend itself to something positive in these difficult times. We created some merchandise for this song that is for sale (The People T-Shirt & Sweatshirt). Proceeds from the merch will be donated to two organizations: All Star Code and I Love Ferguson. All Star Code is an organization that helps under served youth make their way into the tech industry. We’ve been

Big Noyd, Large Professor & Kool G Rap – Naturally Born (Cookin Soul Remix) [Stream]

It’s next to impossible to put down the creative genius that is Cookin’ Soul. With nearly a decade of remixes, and mashups under their belts, the Spanish duo have proven to the world that they have a knack for bringing out the best in any artist they decide to sonically reconstruct. But what would happen if they took a direct flight to Queens? On the Big Noyd, Large Professor and Kool G Rap featured street banger, “Naturally Born,” that’s exactly what happens. After recently appearing on our decennary compilation LP, Unearthed, the original Ayatollah produced head nodder, provided a nostalgic backdrop for the trio to do their thing; this time around, Cookin’ Soul have taken the track to new heights by giving an Uprock-themed overhaul to the original, connecting more to the era of Shell Toes and dookie rope chains, than the time when Timbos and gold medallions reigned supreme. Both versions are now available as a limited edition 7-inch 45, exclusively for Black Friday, via Fat Beats, and the remix is available for download, via iTunes. For more hard hitting, innovative remixes, make sure to check ours forthcoming remix compilation, Remineded: A Collection of New & Old Remixes, which includes features from the likes of Blu, Royce da 5’9″, Heltah Skeltah and Guilty Simpson, and includes remixes from Large Professor, Diamond D, M-Phazes, THe Audible Doctor, Zilla Rocca and more.
