It’s been a long wait, since 2004 to be precise, but today at long last we get the 1st taste from De La Soul‘s forthcoming album You’re Welcome in the form of the Wu Tang Clan inspired “Get Away (feat. the Spirit of the Wu)”.
The Hip Hop veterans get dark and gritty sonically with the commanding soundbed which was inspired by the “Intro” on disc 2 of the Wu-Tang Forever LP and take some of the new school of emcees to task lyrically on the brand new cut.
“I’ve always loved the ‘Intro’ on Disc Two of Wu-Tang Forever – this erie sample with no beat, that they only talked over, I stumbled on the original sample while crate digging one day, took it straight to the lab and added drums. The feel is definitely gritty, hard and sounds like a Wu record, so out of inspirational respect, we included featuring ‘The Spirit of the Wu’ in the song title.” – Posdnuos
