Like the Rubik's Cube represented in the new video for "Get Away (Featuring The Spirit Of The Wu)", De La Soul continues to amaze and confound on so many levels. You may want to cheat and take the stickers off in order to align the colors, but what fun is that? Listening to De La Soul is like attempting to solve the cubic puzzle, it takes multiple tries before grasping the concept at hand. I've loved De La since the beginning, mainly because they represented the avante garde side of Hip Hop. Complex. Different. Etheral. Dope. Most would consider what De La has brought to the table as over most people's heads. I would certainly agree. With this new joint, you get Pos and Dave trading cryptic lyrics over the Wu-Tang Clan intro for Disc 2 from Wu-Tang Forever (which in turn was sampled from the 1982 flick Duel To The with music by Michael Lai). Their new album should be available for dissection and consumption later this fall.
