The legendary group De La Soul recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of their classic debut album 3 Feet High And Rising. With that milestone in mind, the group unveiled their newest track “Dilla Plugged In”, which pays homage to the late great producer J Dilla from Detroit. Fittingly enough, the song features a signature Dilla beat that sounds fresh as ever despite the fact it was probably made over ten years ago. “Dilla Plugged In” will be featured on De La Soul’s upcoming mixtape Smell The DA.I.S.Y., which will included a full set of J Dilla production. The commemorative track has a nostalgic feel to it and of course De La Soul serves up the proper lyrical treatment.

While De La Soul has not provided much musical output in recent years, it appears they are moving in full force with their upcoming mixtape. Having the opportunity to hear an entirely J Dilla produced project in 2014 is a blessing within itself, and “Dilla Plugged In” is a great first offering to say the least. However, the good news does not end there as the veterans announced that another project called Premium Soul On The Rocks is in the works. The production on this mixtape will be handled by two other wizards behind the boards in Pete Rock and DJ Premier. With De La Soul assembling an all-star cast to handle the beats on two projects that will be preceding their official return album You’re Welcome, it is becoming clear that fans of the Native Tongues trio are in for a treat this year.
