De La Soul's "Smell The Da.I.S.Y" review

Tune in to De La Soul as the show off thier masterful lyrical talents and soulfully touching beats, that set the roots for what young artist should strive to be today. This was a great listen that had me tuned into the swag. This rap trio of Posdunos, Dave, and Maseo is still going strong with joints like Track 07- "Taking The Train"

I am embarrassed to say that I don't have much knowledge when it comes to rap's origins. I was born in 1987 and that is when De La Soul first started swaggin. I choose to review this mixtape because I figure its time I start paying respects. Da.I.S.Y. stand for "Da Inner Soul of Yancy" to which I found out is a tribute to J Dilla, producer from Detroit that produced this mixtape before his death in 2006.

What I really like about this mixtape is how strong the lyrics are. I come across plenty of new artist who have strong lyrics as well but they not talking about shit. These guys really bring you into their world and its more poetic than simply spitting on a track. Also I like how they rep Detroit proudly. D-Town is the source for alot of black artist who made it big. Even though I rep Chicago, the two cities are closely intertwined and share alot of similarities.

I hope the fact that they are an older rap group doesn't stir people from listening. Wisdom only comes from living life and it's good for the mind to take in as much as possible. It says something about a group that has been able to stick together after so many years because success has a way of breaking people up. Rap now a days has been lost and my generation has alot to be ashamed of but its all swag.

I was totally thrown off by the outro when they explained the title and asked for donations. Everybody always assuming that I'm some sort of bum because I ask for donations after every review but we all need a lil money. I will donate and post thier donation link for you to support so they keep swaggin. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.
