De La Soul Lyrics

Born: 1987

Styles: Hip-Hop, Alternative Rap, East Coast Rap, Golden Age

At the time of its 1989 release, De La Soul's debut album,
3 Feet High and Rising, was hailed as the future of
hip-hop. With its colorful, neo-psychedelic collage of
samples and styles, plus the Long Island trio's low-key,
clever rhymes and goofy humor, the album sounded like

    ------ About the song En Focus performed by De La Soul

These guys might be the most under-rated rhymers out there. I love this album, even 12 years later.

I think the first line might not be "Ya go beats, meats, son Sheep," but rather, "Ya go ichi, ni, san, shi." That's Japanese for "1, 2, 3, 4." They might have picked that up from the two sick Nihonjin MC's they spotlight on "Long Island Wildin'" a few tracks later.
