As December reaches the height of its winter blossom, it is only fitting that a slew of talented musicians should find their way through our great city before the weather makes it impossible. In the case of the coming weekend’s talent, it is no surprise that Cervantes’ Masterpiece will be hosting the legendary De La Soul as they venture through the And The Anonymous Nobody tour. Returning for the first time since they were last at this venue in the spring of 2014, the classic trio from Long Island is back and ready to flaunt their latest release, which was fully funded by fans (in less that ten hours) on a Kickstarter campaign.
Maseo, Dave, and Posdnuos will be rhyming off of the walls of the main ballroom on Saturday night, surely blowing the hats off of the many patrons who will undoubtably be filling the venue. And why shouldn’t they? De La Soul has been around for decades. They have exposed themselves to many areas of the Hip Hop world, working with the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Damon Albarn, and Mos Def, not to mention the timeless collective that is Native Tongues.
