Product Details


First they brought you 'The Goon Time Mixtape' blasting from a late-night house party in a Parisian suburb. Then we saw our heroes getting endless grief from Deen's overbearing mother in the Mrs. Whitter skit. That was all just a taste of things to come from De La Soul's Plug 1 & Plug 2 present 'First Serve'; a dynamic hip-hop group, an album, a concept, the soundtrack to a movie that has yet to be made and a fable for our times.

'First Serve' is many things, but at its heart it is the story of two young boys from Queens, New York with big dreams and larger rhymes. Two friends, Deen Whitter (aka Plug 2 / Dave) and Jacob 'Pop Life' Barrow (aka Plug 1/ Pos), friends from seventh grade, are by their own admission, "different, but the differences seem to complement everything we do." Their name 'First Serve' comes from their motto, "First come, First Serve, get what you deserve."

After years of laying down demos and mixtapes on the hustle in the hip-hop game, we get the next instalment from their world in the form of the 'We Made It' skit. All the hard work has finally paid off - Jacob and Deen have hit the big time signing to Goon Time Records to become the next new thing to hit the airwaves.

Due to hit the streets worldwide on April 2nd, through Duck Down Music in North America, the 'First Serve' album tells the story of two dreamers in a basement struggling to start their musical career, the battles they face, through to the point that they eventually release their debut single, 'make it big' and their hard work and persistence finally pays off. As we know that is rarely where the story ends and the story of 'First Serve' is no different. Taking place in an animated world that could have been imagined by Hawley Pratt on Magic Mushrooms, the high spirited and often hilarious journey is pure old school hip-hop; skits, disco, beats, funk, quips, burns and hustlin' all included. Ain't nothing gonna stop us now...

Comment: NATIVE TONGUES FOOOOORRRRR EEEEEVVVVVVEEEERRRRRRRR !!!!!!! and im still waiting for Prince Paul to bring that ol flava back like the first three De La albums, in my book that'll be monumental. his element has been missing for too long, thats where it all began that why its all about the first three albums, Paul made them who they are now and who they have been through out their career. De La holds the torch for Native and they'v been consistent for so long.

Comment: Unsure. De La Soul is one of my favorite groups that has best rep for evolving with dope albums from 3 Feet to Grind Date & the online jawn. But most this sounds like weaker imitations of De La's sharp critiques of the past. They addressed pop rap bs 2 decades ago better on Dead. This ain't wack entirely, just not to their own high standard. Maybe they need to call stubdents like MadLib to help them out. They ain't over & finished but this is sub-level, bring real De La Soul creativity back.

Comment: cool with them branching out & trying something new with the concept album... but not with this concept... I understand the message they trying to convey but this one just falls short in my mind. In the end its a decent listen but just not what I was looking for

Comment: No no no... please sit down. Thanks. Anyway, this album is pure... FIRE!!!! For those who don't quite get the theory behind it, then listen closer. Pay way closer attention. They are telling us exactly how the game is and how so-called lovers of this thing called HipHop are often deterred and subject to the grimy world of POP. I can name you TEN of my favorites who wouldn't conform and "fell-off" and some will say, (whiny baby voice) “HipHop is changing and they should except the way… blah blah blah, new concepts blah blah blah…" BMW is the "Ultimate Driving Machine" because they never slacked on QUALITY… same RECIPE, new era. Now tell me how dope and rich Kanye is because you KNOW he's a paintless plain faced clown. If you listen even CLOSER they will tell you who. This is NOT their commercial return nor is it their fall or their jealousy. You think these cats are broke? Please. Great live shows... always bangin. De La ain't dead but clowning all the industry fags who spend their lives generating the popular consensus on top of forgetting what this music IS. You rosy eared radio whores have been so pimped by the new $hit… by Lil' “That-dude-got-money-tho" that HipHop is becoming a forgotten art-form. This isn't jealousy idiots, this is passion. Listen to the story and let the movie play out in your mind. Some beats whack and commersh but THAT's the point. Just dope. I expected no less than genius from the Plugs.

Comment: I will just set this off. I know these dudes... I mean... ya know... not personally but I can just HEAR the mockery ringing. They have been the full embodiment of real HipHop since the gate. For all you gayrods claiming styles are old and blah blah blah 'bout new direction, try some truth. That Kanye Jigga single was ALWAYS GARBAGE. Never not trash. These cats lyrically, touch me. POS is truthfully in my top 10 favorite MCs... ever, "...styling abstract since losse leaf was the shit". Seriously. Imagine that. Get off of "rap's" NUTS, stop blowing rods and eat HipHop like you were supposed to a long time ago. A lady doesn't respond to bullshit!!! If she does she's a whore. We fans call THAT b!tch RAP MUSIC!!!

Comment: Native Tongues have always been dope, but broke as f*ck! Plug 1 + 2 POS, and Dove the Trugoy hate on others cause they aren't good at making sound business decisions as A group. Bitter as f*ck is their style now. Get off that and keep it abstract and underground. What happened to Plug 3 + 4 PA Mason, and Prince paul?

Comment: This should be creative. Trugoy & Posdnous are up there, in that category of The Best rappers. Although I don't expect this album to be as good as Bionix, or Stakes is High, I can't wait to hear it. This looks like a fun-rap project.

Comment: Wow! I can't believe you all don't get it!?! They are mocking today's Hip Hop scene with this from the music, to the the visuals! If you are a true De La Soul fan you would get what they are doing here! Look at Pos with the fohawk and Trugoy with the Rick Ross beard! They are totally clowning all the hipsters and wanna be thugs with this whole concept! Open your ears and eyes!
