De La Soul taken to Kickstarter to fund their new upcoming eighth album, which will feature Damon Albarn, David Byrne, 2 Chainz, and Little Dragon, among others. The veteran hip hop group was originally looking for $110,000 to fund the album and have so far racked up nearly $473,000 for the cause, with 10 days to go. Good job, Internet!
To celebrate, and to prove that they are in fact hard at work on a new album, De La Soul have shared a piece of new music, a song called "God It" featuring Nas. In a statement they said:
While busy at work, we also like to play. This song is not on the new album, but an indication of good music to come. The song was produced by G_Force and you may recognize our featured guest. We're still in Atlanta recording and it sounds amazing! We can't wait to get this new album to you.
