De La Soul To Record DJ Premier, Pete Rock Mixtape

De La Soul is set to work on a mixtape comprised of DJ Premier and Pete Rock beats.

De La Soul is planning a mixtape that could feature beats from DJ Premier and Pete Rock.

“Right now we’re just accumulating beats,” De La's Dave says to XXL. “[DJ Premier and Pete Rock] have been sending us beats. No real idea of what the theme is gonna be, the theme behind the title [Premiem Soul On The Rocks], what that’s gonna be, if it’s gonna be skits, if it’s gonna be songs, remakes, whatever it is. Right now we’ve just been accumulating beats and waiting for Premier to handle some stuff as well." 

This year was the 25-year anniversary of 3 Feet High And Rising

Earlier this year, De La released Smell The D.A.I.S.Y. which was made with J Dilla beats. 

In June, De La spoke with HipHopDX about the formation of the Native Tongues movement

This year, DJ Premier and Pete Rock have done a slew of interviews discussing their work on 1994's Illmatic. In April, the two producers spoke with HipHopDX about this.

There is no release date for the potential DJ Premier, Pete Rock mixtape that De La is planning. They will reportedly begin working on it in September.  

Smell The D.A.I.S.Y. can be streamed below.
