De La Soul are the stars of a new episode of the cartoon network show Teen Titans Go !. The legendary rap trio battles a tentacle monster that steals its music and attacks it with a bazooka that amplifies Trugoy’s voice to emit powerful sound waves. The band and superhero team spend the rest of the episode on a mission to get De La Soul’s music out of the monster’s grip. Check out a clip below and watch the full episode on Cartoon Network.
Last fall, just before the 2020 presidential election, De La shared the anti-Trump song “Remove 45” with Styles P, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Mysonne and Chuck D from Public Enemy as well as samples from Trump. Her Tommy Boy back catalog, which includes LPs Three Feet High and Rising, De La Soul is Dead, Buhloone Mindstate, Stakes Is High and more, stays away from digital streaming platforms in a dispute with the record label.
