“Tommy ain’t my motherfuckin’ Boy..” -GZA “Labels”
Legendary Long Island trio De La Soul announced to the public this week that they are currently unhappy with their former record label, Tommy Boy Records.
For the group’s 30th anniversary of their debut album 3 Ft High And Rising, the group announced via social media posts throughout the week and most recently during an appearance on Sway In The Morning how they would only be receiving 10% of the streaming revenue of their six albums that would now be available online.
On the show, Sway confirmed that Tommy Boy founder and president Tom Silverman and producer Prince Paul were expected to join yesterday’s discussion, but only De La appeared.
Om a positive note De La does have two upcoming albums with DJ Premier and Pete Rock respectively.
