De La Soul “Get Away” Featuring The Spirit of The Wu


The legendary trio De La Soul puts out a new single titled “Get Away” from their upcoming album You’re Welcome. Why did they say it featured The Spirit of The Wu? It’s because the song sampled the intro from Wu-Tang’s album Forever and was the single’s inspiration (I thought it was a new artist too, don’t worry).

De La Soul’s Posdnuos tells Rolling Stone: “I stumbled on the original sample while crate digging one day, took it straight to the lab and added drums. The feel is definitely gritty, hard and sounds like a Wu record, so out of inspirational respect, we included featuring ‘The Spirit of the Wu’ in the song title.” You can listen to the track below, its sure to be a instant favorite.
