Hip Hop trio, De La Soul, are rumored to be hitting the studio to record their eighth album with the help of DJ Premier and Pete Rock.

The impact all the above mentioned artists have made in Hip Hop is undeniable. And I’ve even had the privilege to interview Pete Rock to discuss his contributions to the culture and music. So to discover that these 3 Hip Hop heavyweights are joining forces, I was beyond estatic.

For their eigth studio album, De La Soul, will strictly don production from Premier & Pete Rock on “You’re Welcome;” the rumored title for the project.

De La stated that this tape would be a “benchmark union with two late 80s NY Hip Hop peers.

Right now we’re just accumulating beats. DJ Premier and Pete Rock have been sending us beats.

This should be awesomely interesting.
