At long last, De La Soul's classic first six albums: 3 Feet High and Rising (1989), De La Soul Is Dead(1991), Buhloone Mindstate (1993), Stakes Is High (1996), Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump (2000), and AOI: Bionix (2001), will be available on all major streaming platforms on March 3.
De La Soul regaining their masters and making their groundbreaking early catalog accessible on streaming is a huge victory— not just for Hip-Hop but for music period, and on March 3, it'll be a day to celebrate the win. It will also be a day to honor the life and incredible legacy of De La Soul's Trugoy the Dove, aka Dave, aka Plug 1, who tragically passed away earlier this month.
In short, it's a celebration, and ROCK THE BELLS is all the way here for it. To that end, ROCK THE BELLS is toasting #DeLaDay with a jam-packed virtual event that encourages fans to run up the group's streaming numbers — from a #DeLaDay song generator to a playlist by mood, and surprise appearances and moments, #DeLaDay is our way to give back to the group that has given us so much.
