De La Soul

The three members of De La Soul come out of East Massapequa, Long Island and Amityville, Long Island. The trio came to fame with incredible wordplay and the unique use of samples in their music. They've been present in hip hop since 1987, have influenced the sounds of hip hop groups like the Black Eyed Peas, collaborated with Prince Paul, and won a Grammy for their work with The Gorillaz. It's 2012 and they're just getting started.
