De La Soul : Freedom Of Speak (from Plug Tunnin 12")

De La Soul : Freedom Of Speak (We Got More Than Three) (Tommy Boy, 1987)

From day one De La Soul and Prince Paul always had a little bonus or two on each 12". This was their very first record and you could already feel their genius. Sure at first it seems that it's a regular James Brown loop with some scratches, but it's the little additions to it that made the track so dope. Try to recreate the exact same beat in 2007 and you'll understand.

While talking about De La, I just posted the 5 mics review of De La Soul I Dead at Press Rewind If I Haven't.... Go check it.

Hey- new to your site but lovin' the 12" tracks (wish some of the older stuff was still available).

But I come to you with a question- I'm looking for the remix name of a certain Beastie Boys track that I'm pretty sure was 'intergalactic' or in that time line. The mix is simply guest artists doing their thing with the B.B. track. Some of the artists are Biz, Redman. ANyway if this hasn't been random enough I'll check back to see if you have any idea. Peace and keep up the good work.
