Nearly 25 years after ushering in the “D.A.I.S.Y. Age,” De La Soul remains one of hip-hop’s most innovative audiovisual crews, as demonstrated by their new Rubik’s Cube-inspired video for “Get Away (feat. the Spirit of the Wu).” Fusing some strong language from RZA with a memorable Wu hook, De La’s Dave, Maseo and Posdnuos take a harder stance than usual on this track from the Long Island trio’s upcoming album You’re Welcome, which is due sometime this fall.
In the meantime, De La Soul is out on the road with LL Cool J, Ice Cube and Public Enemy as part of the Kings of the Mic tour. The North American trek runs until July 5th, when it wraps at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.
