The De La Soul catalog recently released to streaming platforms for the first time. Posdnuos, Dave and Maseo have retained control of the rights to the master recordings through their new relationship with Reservoir and Chrysalis Records after a long legal battle with their original label, Tommy Boy Records. “It’s been 20 plus years overdue, but finally, we are here,” says DJ Maseo.
Trugoy The Dove, also known as Plug Two from De La Soul, passed away at 54 last month, just weeks before their catalog was due to arrive on DSPs.
