De La Soul fans have had a sparse selection of music on the streaming services. While the iconic New York hip-hop trio have a vast discography to enjoy, the majority have not been released on streaming services. He was embroiled in a dispute with Tommy Boy Records, who owned their masters, until June, when music company Reservoir bought the label. De La Soul is now in control of their masters, according to Talib Kweli, and the albums will hit streaming services this year, possibly in November.
“We’re working diligently with the right folks at Reservoir, and we sat down with them and got things done pretty quickly actually,” Dave “Trugoy the Dove” Jolicoeur said during a live Instagram this week. “Our music will be released in 2021 on all streaming platforms – we are trying to get the whole catalog out there. It’ll take a minute… a little minute… November.
Previously, De La Soul claimed that Tommy Boy only offered 10% streaming royalties to stream the songs, which the group said turned down. Variety
Now hopefully they’ll get a fair deal and fans can stream their music.
