We recently highlighted how one of the best rap groups of all time in De La Soul had big plans in the works for 2014. With three projects being set for release this year, De La Soul has officially unveiled one-third of the equation in their Smell The D.A.I.S.Y. mixtape, which is filled with an entire set of previously unheard J Dilla beats. De La Soul and J Dilla had deep history together with their Native Tongues connection, so it is great to get the chance to hear the legendary trio rock over Dilla production in 2014. One of the more raw cuts off the project is the track “Vocabulary Skills” which pays homage to the classic lines by Nas. The group put out the song in preperation for the highly anticipated mixtape and we can now listen to the full project! The track has a all too familiar Dilla knock to it and the rhymes of De La Soul sound sharp as ever.

Listen to “Vocabulary Skills” and the rest of the Smell The D.A.I.S.Y. mixtape below!
