De La Soul ft Chuck D - The People

De La Soul feat. Chuck D "The People"

As legends and fathers in Hip Hop, I don't recall Chuck D ever getting on a track with De La, and if not then here we are. "The People" was originally made in June but the timing wasn't right so they held off til today. Of the track they state:

"Originally "The People" was suppose to drop in June around the same time the Chuck D/Hot 97/Peter Rosenberg situation took place. We chose to hold off and not add fuel to any fires. Our next aim was for a Black Friday release. Coincidentally the Ferguson tragedy took place, and more recently the non-indictment verdict. Somehow this song was destined to be a part of something more than just dropping a joint. We hope it will lend itself to something positive in these difficult times.

We created some merchandise for this song that is for sale (The People T-Shirt & Sweatshirt). Proceeds from the merch will be donated to two organizations: All Star Code and I Love Ferguson."
