8th LP from the mighty De La Soul!
The creation of ‘and the Anonymous Nobody’ has been several years in the making. De La Soul wanted to make another sample-based album in the vein of ‘3 Feet High and Rising’. In order to do so, and avoid the legalities of sample clearance, they spent a few years recording more than 300 hours of live music, converging everything from bossa nova, soul and hip-hop to funk, disco and reggae, creating their own sample library.
The body of work is a concept and continuous story, even down to the transitions of songs with sound effects and instrumentals.
Guest appearances include Snoop Dogg, Usher, 2 Chainz, Damon Albarn, David Byrne, Jill Scott and more.
