Fans can rejoice.
After rallying calls to support the arrival of De La Soul's first six albums (3 Feet High and Rising, De La Soul Is Dead, Buhloone Mindstate, Stakes Is High, Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump, and, AOI: Bionix) on major streaming platforms after years of legal delays, the group's pivotal debut, 3 Feet High & Rising has re-entered the Billboard 200, landing at #15.
According to Chart Data, it's a new peak for the influential release.
The Hip-Hop community rallied around the historic release day, celebrating De La's influential music, as well as Trugoy the Dove aka Dave's memory and impact, following his recent passing. The group also celebrated the release to streaming as well as Dave's legacy with The D.A.I.S.Y. Experience, a historic show held at Webster Hall in NYC, which brought out legends including Queen Latifah, Monie Love, Common, and more.
Last weekend, Trugoy the Dove was honored with a mural in Austin. Created by acclaimed artist Tristan Easton, the unveiling was marked by a celebration at the Museum of Graffiti’s inaugural “Art of Hip Hop” pop-up exhibition and featured a set by Maseo.
