Plug Tunin’ :: Weird Rap Discussion Gang Does A Deep Dive On De La Soul

Even before news broke that De La Soul may finally see the Tommy Boy portion of their catalog available on streaming sites and digital storefronts as early as this winter, the members of the Weird Rap Discussion Gang had De La on the brain.  After mentioning them at several intervals in the weeks prior, the collective decided to do a special two part deep dive into the Posdnous (aka Plug Won) and Dave (aka Plug Two), the main lyrical components of the groundbreaking hip-hop trio.  For the respective episodes, each member of the Weird Rap Discussion Gang chose their favorite verse from each MC, a monumental undertaking in its own right, and shared their thoughts on what makes each verse so special.  If you’re one of those people who believes that De La Soul‘s place in hip-hop is underrated, if you’re a fan of innovative and forward-thinking lyricism, or if you just love hearing hip-hop heads talk about hip-hop, then check out both of these episodes, leave likes and comments, and subscribe to the Weird Rap YouTube channel for more great content.
