Classic Material: De La Soul 3 Feet High & Rising EPK

Looking back at these EPK's it's pretty interesting to see how the artists (but probably more the record labels) wanted to present themselves to the world for the first time. The Nas EPK got me hooked on these thing and here is another one. It's De La in their Daisy Age days. We all know they ended up hating this image, and they said from the jump (and it's all over this EPK) that they weren't hippies but they still got labeled that way anyways. That's what being original will get you. Interviews, freestyles, videos, live footage, and cameos by DMC, Red Alert, KRS One, Big Daddy Kane, Daddy-O, and of course Prince Paul make this EPK super dope.
