When them chefs in the streets they call me De La, as if I lost my soul.”

De La Soul is back! The ’90s hip hop legends return with a kickstarter campaign to fund their ninth studio album “And The Anonymous Nobody”. With “God it” as a new single featuring our rap king Nas, the group surpassed their Kickstarter goal. The new album includes features with 2 Chainz and Little Dragon. The iconic backpacker sound converged with Mr. Titi Boi himself will be a fascinating listen.

“God it” bangs hard and it’s classic hip hop at its finest. Listen to the track now and read the lyrics courtesy of Genius.com below:

[Verse 1: Posdnuos]

Grown man salute check the black suit, a fair black tie

Got these kids fillin’ up the premises, they want the supply

Product is uncut, we givin’ you what you need cause you pay the prices

And if albums like pizza pies, we know you ain’t tryna pay for them slices

When them chefs in the streets they call me De La, as if I lost my soul

I still got it baby boy, (?) sound on patrol

Check the foul while we run it international like no other

For me in the (?) rockin’ them New York Knicks in them number blue colors

They got it for two for five, we got it for three for free baby

Cause you gonna get hooked off this verbal dope we cooked that’s how it’s gonna be baby

This digital onslaught, it’s the world we live, get on it or get quiet

You stay home while we stay on that Nasir Jones, ya’ll, the world is our diet

[Hook: (Posdnuos) + Nas]

When we glide the world, what we tellin’ ‘em?

(Still got it baby boy)

Within’ the loudest crowds, what we yell at ‘em?

(Still got it baby boy)

Walk amongst the people, what they eyes sayin’?

(Still got it baby boy)

Those that thought they were equal, they demise sayin’

(Still got it baby boy)

[Verse 2: Dave]

As young boys we played on the stoop playin’ punch buggie, now we OG’s drivin’

Limited whips from 2016, just watch what we call perfect timin’

The cradle is straight, the fridge got a cradle estate, we dyin’ like Thanksgivin’

If you on seconds with nothin’ to share, then kill yourself what’s life worth livin’?

Case studies say hip hop is dead huh? I think I need to taste the puddin’

Proof in it, if God was a kid when sales went from platinum to wooden

Special affairs, who cares about the special effects ya’ll – we like no others

Show respect to this grown man ink young fella, recorded your mothers

Now when I walk in the street they call me De La as if I lost my soul

I still got it baby boy, check the Nikes baby boy

Overseas or domestic, we exchange currency til the paper’s extinct

You like fossils in the wild, we live with God’s Child fuck what ya’ll think.
