Song: “Dinninit”

Album: Stakes Is High, 1996

Label: Tommy Boy Stakes Is High

Emerging on the Hip-Hop scene towards the late-80’s, De La Soul was considered a group that would prove to be a great addition to what was unraveling into one of the fastest growing musical genres. The three-man group from Long Island was exploring different aspects of music unlike other rappers at the time which included more than just Jazz and old-school fundamentals.

Posdnuos, Trugoy The Dove and Pasemaster Mase, who comprised the group was just weird all around, but it worked for them and they created some pretty great albums during their career.

Their fourth album, Stakes Is High, wasn’t their greatest or most memorable album to date. It was one of those albums that produced some pretty good singles, but it just didn’t sell too well. One of the records, “Dinninit” was my favorite. It has the typical carefree, witty aspect to it while still being really catchy. Unfortunately no video was created for this record, but you can still take a listen below:
