De La Soul’s New Concept
De La Soul are set to release an old school hip hop, disco and funk inspired concept album under their new alter egos First Serve. Scroll down to hear the song ‘Pushin’ Aside, Pushin’ Along’ and to watch the skit Mrs. Whitter. Plug 2/Dave and Plug 1/Pos from the hip hop band have stepped into character for the project, becoming Deen Whitter and Jacob ‘Pop Life’ Barrow to record the ‘First Serve’ album, which will be released on April 2.
Described as “the soundtrack to a movie that has yet to be made and a fable for our times”, the album tells the story of Deen and Jacob, two childhood friends living in Queens, New York with dreams of making it big in the music world. The album’s story follows the pair as they go on to release a single and then become successful artists. In the skit Mrs. Whitter, we are shown the pair in their early years in Deen’s mother’s basement as they drink beer and smoke weed – watch it below.
