Fans of De La Soul are in luck, their music will now be on all DSP’s.
The group announced Tuesday that their catalog, most of which has never been legally available on streaming services, will finally arrive on all major platforms later this year.
The news comes after the catalog of De La Soul’s original label, Tommy Boy Records, was acquired by Reservoir Music in a 100-million-dollar deal.
After Reservoir Media purchased Tommy Boy Records for $100 million, they reached out to the group to work on a deal that included the full catalog of De La Soul.
As reported earlier this week Talib Kweli shared the announcement on his Instagram.
“After years of being taken advantage by the recording industry in the worst possible ways, De La Soul now owns all the rights to their masters and is in full control of the amazing music they have created,” Kweli wrote. “Let’s salute Plugs 1, 2 and 3 for sticking to their guns and showing us that we can all beat the system if we come together as a community. Let’s hear it for black ownership of black art! Congratulations fellas…”
This is a game changer for classic Hip-Hop enthusiast, now we can legally jam 3 Feet High and Rising at the functions.
