De La Soul is back. Sort of anyway. What happens when you combine De La Soul + Kickstarter?  New Album that you pretty much pre-order with your contribution. The trio love sampling but this time around they are making all original music samples. So for their ninth album they have gone to Kickstarter to help with their vision. They had a modest goal of $110,000. The goal was smashed on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter in no time. The De La Soul album will be out this September.


Here are just a few of the things you can get for contributing to De La Soul’s Kickstarter:

  • A shopping trip with De La Soul (toy shopping with Dave, record shopping with Maseo, or sneaker shopping with Pos)
  • A Skype date with the trio
  • Thumb drives in the shape of each member’s head
  • De La Soul Nike sneakers
  • A day in the studio with the group, during which you record vocals for a skit on the album
  • A custom print
  • A boom box from Dave’s personal collection or an MPC from Pos’ collection
  • Dave’s gold record plaque for 3 Feet High and Rising
