All is good in the world when De La Soul drop new music and by the sounds of this banger it won;t be long before we have an albums worth of that classic De La sound we’ve grown to love 24 yrs and rising.

Pos gave Rolling Stones insight into the making of the cut.

“I’ve always loved the ‘Intro’ on Disc Two of Wu-Tang Forever – this erie sample with no beat, that they only talked over, 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.”

Greg "Cognito" Barr first entered the hip hop world as a dancer during the early 1990s in the DC metro area. Later his love for hip hop brought him to Atlanta, GA where he formed the underground group massinfluence. With massinfluence, the relationships within the music industry grew both here in the US and abroad during their many European tours with the likes of the Company Flow, Beat Junkies, Jurassic 5, De La Soul, Blackstar and many others. Also during these years is when Cognito, also known as "Nito", put his mark in hip hop iconography by introducing his line of t-shirts "Nonstop Hip Hop" which was featured in classic video by De La Soul and Jeru the Damaja. Over the past 10 years, Nito has captured classic footage of some of hip hops greatest, including Jay Z, Mos Def, The Gorillaz, Nikka Costa, MF DOOM, De La Soul, Pharoahe Monch and The Roots. Recently, Cognito shot and compiled 4 years of concert and behind the scenes footage of Talib Kweli for a still to be released documentary.
