De La Soul returns with 20 brand new tracks on “Impossible Mission”. Narrated by De La themselves, Posdnuos, Trugoy, and Maseo explain what “Buhloone Mindstate” they were in when they recorded each track.

De La Soul’s debut album, “3 Feet High and Rising” (1989), was an instant smash that saw the group labeled as “hippies” due to the message of peace and love. They quickly became prominent members of the Zulu Nation, along with A Tribe Called Quest, Black Sheep, Queen Latifah, The Jungle Brothers and others. They were also members of the famed Native Tongues Posse and mentioned the group often in their music. “Me, Myself and I” became a huge hit, further cementing the group’s popularity. De La’s follow-up albums, “De La Soul Is Dead” (1991), “Buhloone Mindstate” (1993), “Stakes Is High” (1996), “AOI: Mosaic Thump” (2000), “AOI: Bionix” (2001), and “The Grind Date” (2004) were all critically-acclaimed releases.

In 2006 we get yet another installment of the De La genius with their new release, “Impossible Mission”. Standout cuts on “Impossible Mission” include “Live @ The Dugout ’87,” “Voodoo Circus,” “Friends,” and the ultra funky “You Got It.” A bonus treat includes a live performance in Tokyo, Japan. Ever since their last album, “The Grind Date”, was released, fans have been waiting for more from the trio from Amityville, Long Island. With production from the likes of Oh No (Murs, LMNO), Geology (Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Jill Scott, Bahamadia), Supa Dave West (Phife Dawg, Reflection Eternal, Me’Shell NdegéOcello), and De La Soul themselves, this album should definitely wet their appetites.
