This project was released under Rap-A-Lot Records and is the group’s most successful album to date!
De La Soul, De La Soul Is Dead (1991)
Classic cover art from a classic hip-hop group, De La Soul. The collective’s sophomore album wasn’t as successful or critically acclaimed as their debut 3 Feet and High Rising , but the cover art was definitely more dope. The pot design symbolizes both death and the group not wanting to be associated as hippies anymore.
