De La Soul is fighting for their fair share of sales from its album catalogue.
As the catalogue goes to streaming platforms, the group altogether will see 10% of the revenue. Tommy Boy Records will reportedly receive 90% of it.
Some streaming websites, like Tidal, are pushing back, saying they will not put their music on their platform until the issue is resolved.
De La Soul’s catalog with Tommy Boy Records goes all the way back to 1989, when they released 3 Feet High and Rising.
Happy birthday, “3 Feet High and Rising”! You are 27 years old today, and have stood the test of time.
The album De La Soul made in 1989 brought you great hits like “Potholes in My Lawn”, “Buddy”, and the classic Prince Paul-produced “Me, Myself, and I”.
