My introduction......

My introduction to hip hop.....

ok so its only fair i start up with the whole reason this blog is being made....DE LA SOUL

like them or not? they have to be one of the most original groups of all time... and that means all types of music.

before my school trip i had heard the obvious "THE MAGIC NUMBER" played around on radio and stuff. But it didnt come to me properly until i heard the whole album about 4 times in a row on the minibus to wales. sounds repetitive but i assure you if you take time out to listen to this album it will probably/hopefully have the same effect on you?
Other great tracks that had good success were " EYE KNOW " & " SAY NO GO "


it was the first time i heard an album that kinda had a story to it. and the more you listened along the more you heard and laughed at some of the outrageous things being said in the story.

DE LA have always to this day made light hearted music that sounds easy to the ear but underneath, sometimes anyways, tells a darker story to life in the streets and if broken down properly is probably as hardcore as other rappers like "PUBLIC ENEMY" + "N.W.A. "

Their tales are just as gritty but DE LA always managed to have that easy listening sound to them.
