De La Soul – Dilla Plugged In (Prod. By J Dilla)
The gifts keep coming from De La Soul. The trio gave away their whole catalog for free on Valentine’s Day and now to commemorate the release of their debut album ’3 Feet High And Rising’ they’ve dropped a new take one of their classics with a J Dilla twist.
‘Dilla Plugged In’ features Posdnous and Dave doing their verses from their early hit ‘Plug Tunin’ over an unreleased Dilla beat with its somber piano chords and a signature filtered bass Jay Dee lines. ‘Plug Tunin”s quirky playfulness get replaced with a more solemn, yet still funky feel as the Plugs teen voices and youthful delivery have become grown man swaggering. Dilla would be proud.
