CLASSIC De La Soul on cassette! Deadstock french pressing of De La Soul Is Dead. After the huge success of 3 Feet High and Rising, the group continued to work with Prince Paul, and Dead, which dropped in 1991, showcases its attempt to stave off the "hippie" label while also distancing itself from mainstream hip-hop. Presenting a more mature sound, the album garnered The Source's coveted 5-mic rating and is a certified hip-hop classic. Features some of the best De La songs of all time including "Saturdays," "Keep The Faith," "Pass The Plugs," "Ring Ring Ring," "Bitties In The BK Lounge," and more. Time to dust off the walkman! Even if you don't own a cassette player, it's hard to deny the sentimental values these tapes hold - a must for true heads!
- music label: Tommy Boy 1991
