DE LA SOUL AND NAS STILL 'GOD IT'

April 23, 2015

After smashing their Kickstarter goal to fund the group’s eighth studio album, hip hop trio De La Soul have teamed with Bestival Toronto headliner Nas for a retro jazz-infused new track titled, "God It." The group has said the song will not be included on the upcoming album, An Anonymous Nobody, but instead acts as a teaser for “good music to come.” The new album, which is their first in 11 years, will feature other big names like Damon Albarn, David Byrne, 2 Chainz, and Little Dragon. There’s no release date yet, but recording begins this month.

 

In a statement, De La Soul's Dave said:  

 

“While busy at work, we also like to play. This song is not on the new album, but an indication of good music to come. The song was produced by G_Force and you may recognize our featured guest. We're still in Atlanta recording and it sounds amazing! We can't wait to get this new album to you.”

 

You can listen to “God It” below.

Brooklyn Semhar waxes melancholic and laments a family divided on “Daddy.” This track is a smouldering, slow-burning groove that pulls itself along with all the moodiness of its subject matter. It is arranged beautifully, and reflects a refreshing jazz influence in its...

Canadian singer-songwriter Kiesza is back! After the enormous popularity of her 2014 house-pop single ‘Hideaway’, she went on collaborate with a stunning array of famous names. Names like Skrillex, Diplo, and Duran Duran, to name a few. Tragically, her career was put o...
