Mark the date now! The Espy, in conjunction with Triple R, Sneaker Freaker, Inpress and Max are proud to present the return of De La Soul. Get set for a night of daisy dopeness as the original Native Tongue members hit the stage for this once in a lifetime experience. Technically it’s a twice in a lifetime event, as a second and final show has just been added to the bill. It may have something to do with the jamming 10 piece backing band hand-picked from the best players and session musicians in the USA, rounding out the magic number of Dave, Pos and Mase! Live hip hop is such a rarity these days and with The Roots continuing to kill it internationally with their organic, big band feel, the De La dukes are set to bring the noise down under, bigger and better than ever.
To celebrate their 20th anniversary in hip hop, the tour will be accompanied by the release of a limited edition 6 track EP, produced in co-operation with Nike - peep the video here. Add to that an incredibly killer line up of international and local supports from Cut Chemist, J.Period, Mugen, Gsan to name a few, it’s time to ‘ring ring ring’ and secure your ticket today!
