De La Soul

Rap Group Regarded as one of the pioneering forces in hip hop's alternative- and jazz-influenced Native Tongue movement, De La Soul blew the minds of millions with their 1989 debut 3 Feet High and Rising, which many consider a hip hop masterpiece. Their quirky, positive lyrics and Afrocentric laid-back style amidst rap’s grittiness put them in their own category, often being referred to as “hippies.” The funky trio not only created classic tracks like “Me, Myself and I,” “Buddy” and “Stakes Is High,” but showed the world that you can be successful rap artists without shooting guns, using profanity and showing off half-naked girls in music videos. Eight albums deep and 20 years later, the Grammy-winning group still keeps fans intrigued with their positive energy and psychedelic sound.
