De La Soul’s Catalog To Finally Debut On DSPs In March 2023
Written by 2DOPEBOYZ on January 16, 2023
After taking essentially their whole careers to do so, the entire catalog of De La Soul‘s is finally back in their possession. And, finally, the legendary trio’s 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 released digitally for the first time ever on March 3, 2023 (or, “3-3-23”).
Posdnuos, Trugoy, and Maseo celebrate the end of their long and arduous journey with the DSP debut of “The Magic Number.” The song — actually a focus track from their 1989 debut — was featured in the 2021 film Spider-Man: No Way Home… which may have low-key helped kick off the stronger push for De La Soul to finally get their catalog back on the streaming platforms.
“Thank YOU for supporting us for the past 34 years,” the group says. “There’s no us without U.”
