Hip-Hop Artists De La Soul

Hip Hop Artists De La Soul. Formed in 1985, De La Soul released their latest record Art Official Intelligence this August. Once dubbed "the hippies of hip hop", De La Soul continue to pen songs without gangsta rap influence, focusing instead on the use of samples, jazz vamps, and wordplay. Consisting of Posdnuos, Trugouy the Dove, and Pasemaster Mace, the male trio began recording at the same time as Queen Latifah, Monie Love, and A Tribe Called Quest. De La Soul hails from Long Island, New York.
