You might think of De La Soul as the laid back, thoughtful kind of hip-hop meant for summertime lounging, but they’ve proven in the past they can bring some of that hard-hitting style, and for this one they take it a step further and re-unite for a new cut that channels Wu-Tang.

De La Soul’s Posdnuos explains, “I’ve always loved the ‘Intro’ on Disc Two of Wu-Tang Forever – this eerie sample with no beat, that they only talked over. I stumbled on the original sample while crate digging one day, took it straight to the lab and added drums.”
