The music of De La Soul is now available on streaming sites.

Later this year, streaming services will finally offer the famed discography of De La Soul, including their 1989 album 3 Feet High and Rising. Since Reservoir Media acquired the group’s master recordings in 2021, the plans have been in the works.

The band released a statement in which it said, “We can’t believe this day has finally arrived, and we are pleased to be able to share our music with fans, old and new.”

De La Soul’s Posdnuos clarified the delay in a 2016 interview with the BBC.

On those early albums, our contracts expressly stated “vinyl and cassette,” he remarked. “The language wasn’t ambiguous enough to support [new] music technology.”

“So as the full digital music era came into play, new deals needed to be cut for those complete albums,” he explained.

Posdnuos claims that Warner Bros. “simply don’t want to deal with it” in the end.

“They ask, ‘Is it worth it?’ You have to go through almost every song with a fine comb to make sure this or that sample has been removed. It’s very It’s been a long and tiring process.”

The group released his 3 Feet High and Rising in March 1989. The album features many of De La Soul’s classics, including “Me Myself and I,” “The Magic Number,” “Buddy,” and “Eye Know.” It is frequently cited as one of the greatest rap albums of all time. In 2010, the Library of Congress’ National Register of Records deemed the work “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

Specifically, when De La Soul’s music will be available, the group announced on social media that March 3, 2023, is that date.
