De La Soul will headline 2012 Akron Hip Hop Showcase at Lock 3 Park in September

By Malcolm Abram Published: June 7, 2012


Hell Yeah!

Akron Hip Hop Showcase 2012 is officially FRESH!

(yeah, that's right I said "fresh")

Plug 1, Plug Two and Maseo are coming to Akron's annual Hip Hop Showcase at Lock 3 Live Park on Sunday, September 2 (not the 14th as advertised) to remind us of the dopeness (that's right I said "dopeness") that was the late 80's/early 90's hip hop era.

De La Soul hasn't released an album since the underrated "The Grind Date" in 2004.

Though emcees Posdonous (plug 1) and Dave (plug 2) have appeared on a few mixtapes and won a Grammy with The Gorillaz for "Feel Good Inc." in '06.

They also released a collaborative concept record Called "First Serve" with French DJ duo Chokolate and Khalid last month

It's pretty good..not quite as conceptually deep as Prince Paul's A Prince Among Thieves, but a fun listen nonetheless.
