    RisingSeminal hip hop outfit De La Soul is making its entire back catalog available to download for free, marking the 25 year anniversary of its classic debut album, 3 Feet High and Rising.

    You can garner the trio’s full arsenal of recorded music from 11am EST today (Friday, February 14) until noon EST tomorrow, directly from the official De La Soul website.

    This move is notable for a number of reasons, but perhaps chiefly because the band has yet to make its full catalog of tunes available online, specifically its earlier efforts, due to the abundance of samples the band uses. But for a 25-hour period kicking off today, you can get it all.
