Vin Rican is back again with another classic Wax Only installment.
Earlier this year we honored De La Soul’s ‘3 Feet And Rising’ debut album and with the celebration of the iconic rap group’s ‘Buhloone Mindstate’ 25th anniversary, it was only right to deliver the breakdown of De La’s third studio project.
Released back in 1993, the Tommy Boy Records LP was the last record the group produced with Prince Paul. Naming their album as the phonetic spelling of “balloon,” the theme of expanding the group’s popularity without selling out remained a constant throughout the project.
Vin Rican rips through the classic samples De La used on the project which include tracks from The Outlaw Blues Band, Milt Jackson’s “People Make The World Go Round,” Lou Rawls, Smoey Robinson’s “A Quiet Storm,” and even Michael Jackson’s “I Can’t Help It.”
Watch the classics from De La Soul’s ‘Buhloone Mindstate’ come alive on this week’s Wax Only.
