De La Soul on Formation of Group and “Hippie” Image by Label (Flashback)

In this VladTV Flashback from 2015, De La Soul spoke about how their group came about. "When we first came out people kinda embraced it," says Trugoy, "It wasn’t as if [the genre] was oversaturated with boasting rap or gangsta rap, or anything like that. I think we just formed a balance that people just naturally embraced."

De La Soul then spoke on how during hip-hop’s Golden Era there was more balance because a variety of talented artists and groups who represented different sub-genres of hip-hop were all given time to shine, and this served to bolster the art form’s appeal. Watch the full clip to get their thoughts on their label manufacturing a "hippie" image for them to market their music and their thoughts on the inherent authenticity of the music from hip-hop’s Golden Era.
