De La Soul GI from FB

Legendary hip hop trio bring back the Daisy Age in time for summer.

De La Soul have announced a string of dates in the UK in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their groundbreaking 3 Feet High And Rising. The band will tour the country in early May before returning in the summer for festival shows including Camp Bestival and Kendal Calling.

Most recently the group released their entire back catalogue for free on Valentines Day, which ended up mired in a little controversy surrounding the origin of the files, and they’ve also announced a J Dilla-produced mixtape called Smell The D.A.I.S.Y.

Here are the first set of dates announced. [Via NME]
