Serving the New De La?

Posted by on Mon, Jan 16, 2012 at 11:35 AM


First Serve is De La Soul sans Maseo. I really do not know what that means? Meaning, my De La Soul scholarship is not deep enough to understand how that really changes things. I can understand the significance of a De La Soul sans Trugoy of Posdnuos; I can see how that would make a big difference in my experience of the music. In fact, how is the new and excellent track by First Serve,"Pushin' Aside, Pushin' Along," that different from the tracks that constitute De La's canonized body of work?

Still, I wonder what happened to Maseo? I hope everything is cool with those three. I hope what ever hit A Tribe Called Quest did not spread and infect them. I hope for the best.
