Real hip hop fans rejoice! The day is here. De La Soul have just released their eagerly awaited fully J Dilla produced mixtape Smell The Da.I.S.Y. (Da Inner Soul of Yancey). Eleven tracks of previously unreleased Dilla beats accompanied by De La vocals. We first got wind of this musical gem when De La Soul released Dilla Plugged In a few weeks ago, which we should add we loved. There’s a variety of sounds ranging from the electronic/glitchy sounding No More No Less to the boom bap vibes of Goes With The Word and there’s even some Marvin Gaye in there for good measure. To enjoy all this music for absolutely nothing hit the download link and check out the tracklist on the artwork below.
R.I.P. James ‘J Dilla’ Yancey.
