Apparently, De La Soul’s Plug 1 and 2, Posdnuos and Dave, have their own project together without Plug 3, Maseo. They am, they be: First Serve . And not only that, just to keep things extra distinct, Pos n’ Dave have adopted the character aliases Jacob “Pop Life” Barrow and Deen Whittier for the forthcoming self-titled concept album. A collab with French production team 2 & 4, it tells the story of two Queens teenagers who spend a lot of time in a basement dreaming of making it big in rap. Peep the above video for some semi-hallucinatory visualization, and listen below to “Pushin’ Aside, Pushin’ Along” – a fresh new joint which, if we’re not mistaken, appears to borrow a piano line lifted from children’s TV show, Thomas the Tank Engine . Da Inner Sound still lives, y’all!
