After the daisies, peace signs, and the enormous success that 3 Feet High & Rising was, De La Soul went on to shake off the hip-hop-hippie label. De La Soul is Dead followed, and the album is a CLASSIC, like, the-Source-5-Mics (or 5 broken records) classic. So here is a must-have bundle for fans of Pos, Dave, and Mase, and it consists of deadstock De La Soul is Dead CASSETTE TAPE, and an official t-shirt that features the iconic graphic. Get it!

Here’s one to add to your rap tee collection. Being pigeonholed as hippies after the incredible 3 Feet High and Rising, the Strong Island crew trio set out to end the “D.A.I.S.Y Age” with De La Soul Is Dead, the sentiment captured quite literally on this t-shirt.
Also available are Sonic Youth t-shirts in two different colors. Goo is the NY band’s sixth studio album, and the artwork, by Raymond Pettibon and featured on the front of the shirts, has become argualy the most iconic of SY covers. These will go great with a pair of “Dirty Boots.”
Rounding out the music tee drops is the Within & Without shirt from Washed Out, and it’s a simple, lowkey piece featuring the type treatment from the chillwave artist’s 2011 debut.
It’s undeniable, the Native Tongues left their mark on Hip Hop as we know it.

The catalog proves the history and their age defying careers continue to bring legions of new fans. Check out these lab exclusivos below now available at Turntable Lab.

Every Tuesday we update our bestseller charts (“Lab Box Scores”) to keep you in the loop of what Labheads are buying. There’s two charts (music, non-music), and I’ll be analyzing each chart every week on the blog.
It seems that the world can’t get enough of Amerigo Gazawa’s Bizarre Tribe A Quest To The Pharcyde. The hip hop mashup pops up in pretty much every available version on the chart.

Skate kids, Rockabilly guys, Hippys, and Hip Hop dudes can all agree on one thing. De La Soul is the best Hip Hop group to ever happen. Their debut album caught the Hip Hop heads off guard with clever word play, weirdo beats from Prince Paul, and of course their crazy style. Mixing the old with the new, De La Soul paved their own way and continue to do so as one of the greatest to keep on keeping on.
One of the nicest represses we’ve seen, if you don’t already have “3 Feet” this is definitely the copy to get. Full color original artwork on outer and inner sleeves and pressed on 2x 160 gram vinyl.
Deluxe triple vinyl boxset version! Not only do you get hooked up with both the the vocal versions and instrumentals for A Quest To The Pharcyde, but you also get a special slipmat featuring the Bizarre Tribe logo and an exclusive t-shirt! To top it off, each set is individually numbered with only 50 in existence so act fast! Our original review: A full album of Tribe x Pharcyde mash-ups from Amerigo Gazaway. Ya’ll should remember Amerigo from his last mash-up effort Fela Soul, and here on Bizarre Tribe he puts those blending skills to work on classics from two legendary rap groups.
No introduction needed for Wax Poetics. Seeing a slight format change with issue number 50, their continuing coverage of Soul music from Disco to Hip Hop is top notch and will remain a source of music knowledge that is lacking in the print world.
Issue #55 features Daft Punk and De La Soul on the covers with features on Nile Rodgers, Disco stalwart Gino Soccio, Slum Village + more.
