Image: 1580365 De La's debut represented a new path for hip-hop, a reaction to conventions that had turned into clichés. It was friendly and playful enough to cross over to a pop audience (thanks to Prince Paul's production, which found the funk hiding inside Steely Dan and "Schoolhouse Rock"), but complicated and tough enough to be hugely influential in the hip-hop world. Cryptic but ecstatic, and sometimes sexy (especially the ingenious double-entendre "Buddy"), Trugoy and Posdnuos's lyrics invented a "new style of speak," dense with self-invented slang and metaphors. The hits, including "Say No Go" and "Me Myself And I," are delightful, but the little sketches and sound-experiments between them make the whole disc flow effortlessly. And with 14 extra bonus tracks, this is a must for any vinyl collection. Not only are ALL the tracks freshly remastered, but the artwork has been reworked painstakingly pixel by pixel to bring you fresh clear cut sleeve and label design, freshly pressed onto CLEAR Vinyl to give you a 3XLP Vinyl Collection that you'll never forget! Limited to 1000 copies so grab yours while you can!
