De La Soul Present 'First Serve' - Album Out Now

De La Soul's Plug 1 & Plug 2 Present 'First Serve' - Album Out Now

'First Serve' is many things, but at its heart it is the story of two young boys from Queens, New York in the late-1990's with big dreams and larger rhymes. It follows two friends, Deen Whitter (aka Plug 2 / Dave) and Jacob 'Pop Life' Barrow (aka Plug 1/ Pos), through their struggles in a basement to start their musical career and the battles they face after years of laying demos and mixtapes on the hustle in the hip-hop game.

* *

But all the hard work has finally paid off - Jacob and Deen have hit the big time signing to Goon Time Records, and quickly enjoying their first hit with the bouncy orchestral flourish of "Must B The Music."

* *

The story plays out - from the "Opening Credits" through to tracks like the funky euphoric "We Made It," following Deen and Jacob's original success, through the darkly-hung, break-up ode of "Clash Symphony" to their eventual, tender reunion on the irresistible "Tennis"- with some of De La's most irrepressible rhymes in years, and a succession of hilarious skits. The pair find themselves "bound together with a handshake, not a contract."

* *

We leave them back on top, on a Paris stage with the call-and-response finale, and surely future hit "Move 'Em In, Move 'Em Out." Where do they go from here? With a world this vibrant, the possibilities seem endless. There are whispers of sequels, comic books, live action versions of this story...but for now, 'First Serve' lives on in the form of some truly awesome beats and rhymes.

Press Release: Music Soundz Better Wit BoogZ

This week I bring you Ben Boogz's contribution to our Funky Beat Down campaign. Why are the 2 Hungry Bros finally  indicating who is making what? Well for 2 reasons-
1. The fans is fam already and it's like we're all feasting together and presenting who made what specialty dish.
2. Since we both became fathers it been very difficult to get together so we're not fooling anyone.

This Funky Beatdown campaign will be the last opportunity to see what different flavors the 2 of us bring and why it's made our brand of production quite versatile. After this it's back to guessing, unless of course the artists want to act like snitches and don't understand That the bros don't share that ego trip.
Oh and 3rd- these Beat Beasts play out more like megamixes than compositions. Variety is the SPICE of life and well the 2 Hungry Bros Kitchen is RACK CITY. Embrace musical variety.

The circus has left town. I'm home, with nothing but memories. Some will stick forever. Others, I hope will disappear. The circus was fun. We all prefer a certain ring over the others, but we always make the best out of our least favorites.

The lion tamers were daring. The trapeze artists were beautiful. The clowns? Well, they were just clowns. Squeezing into their Volkswagens and driving anywhere they could get attention. Always laughed at. They invite the laughter. They believe the laughter is what keeps the wheels spinning. Nobody wants to pose for photos with the sword swallower, but the sword swallowers are never laughed at. Nobody wants the signature of the flame swallower, but the flame swallower is never mocked. Their lives are risked, but they can never be the face. The clowns on the other hand...They're the stars! Shining bright. Painted red smiles over their chapped lips and yellow teeth. They're easily accessible. Not everyone can lick fire. But everyone can giggle and somersault.

The Greatest Show On Earth!

I'm home. With a brand new sword. The Busker. A song produced by Techtwelve, and a video directed by Dan Jardine.

On April tenth I will release a deluxe edition of my most recent LP, Run With The Creeps. 6 new songs. And extended version of The Stranded. A cover of Dee Dee Ramone's Funky Man, as well as an unexpected/powerful collaboration with Neverending White Lights. Along with the four songs are 4 tape recorder demos recorded in 2008. Brian Wilson recorded minutes after the most important dish washing session of my life. The demos truly represent the beginning, fitting perfectly with Run With The Creeps' closing chapter.

If you order now, you will immediately recieve a copy of The Busker.

Hope you like.
