De La Soul sits down with Hard Knock Tv at Paid Dues. Part 2, sharing their thoughts on what has kept them together as a group after all these years. De La speaks on how they feel about the new generation like Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and Joey Bada$$. I agree with what they are saying even though I don't listen to a lot of Lil Wayne albums I do think he is talented artist and wish he would be more conscious with his rhymes.
"We are in our episode of the 80's with disco and R&B...but we are coming out of that." "It became big business." Dave adds that its about having a balance. We need more platforms like Paid Dues that allow artists like Jean Grae, Tech Nine, Scarface, have a chance to be seen more than just whats on MTV, Billboard Charts or who is number one on Itunes. "Never forget that there is another side to what is going on than up there on the charts." - De La Soul
