HOMEBASE, SPOT Groningen and Simplon have joined forces to bring hip hop icon De La Soul to Groningen! This successful hip hop trio scored a number of big hits around the beginning of the nineties with songs like ‘Me Myself And I’, ‘Say No Go’ and ‘Ring Ring Ring (Ha, Ha, Hey!)’.
From the debut album ‘Three Feet High And Rising’, De La Soul was praised for its likeable and highly melodic mix of rap, jazz and pop. De La Soul was also quickly seen as one of the leading groups of the Native Tongues, a movement within hip-hop of black, nationalistic hip-hoppers who leaned heavily on Afro-centric lyrics and rhythms from jazz. Other well-known hiphoppers from the Native Tongues included A Tribe Called Quest, Queen Latifah and The Jungle Brothers.
