De La Soul's Posdnuos @ Bud Light Hotel 1/31/2014
Bud Light Hotel

De La Soul's groundbreaking debut album, 1989's 3 Feet High and Rising, turns 25 this year. To celebrate, the Long Island trio are offerning up their entire catalog as a free download (320kbs MP3s) for 25 hours on the group's website starting today at 11 AM EST. MC Posdnuos told Rolling Stone:

It's about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it. It's been too long where our fans haven't had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them.

De La Soul were among the classic hip hop acts who played one of the Bud Light Hotel cruises (1/31) that happened during Super Bowl mania here in NYC. The Roots, Run DMC, Naughty by Nature, Busta Rhymes, Slick Rick & Doug E Fresh, were among the other performers and a belated set of pictures from that are in this post.

Meanwhile, Maseo of De La Soul will be DJing at East Village club Fat Buddha on Monday (2/17) with DJ Mike Loe & Chosun. Doors are at 8PM and it's free.
