De La Soul‘s performance at Roots Picnic 2012 was definitely one of the highest, brightest highlights of a weekend of highlights. For those of us who grew up on De La and most likely had our concept of hip-hop (and overall mindstate) blown up to buhloone-like proportions, seeing them rock the crowd so perfectly in sync with their musical progeny–and now fellow-pioneers–The Roots was a family reunion of the greatest kind. Even before Yasiin Bey took the stage! The timeless performance came with some extremely timely news as well, because when we sat down in a hotel lobby to build with Plugs Won & Too–still riding high off the sunshine of picnic-love–about the experience, they also let some info about their forthcoming album drop. In fact Pos stated that the next video would be coming “in a few weeks”–and since Roots Picnic was already a few weeks ago, we can expect some new plug material imminently! Click above (or below) to get the full details and feel what we felt watching this epic happening from the wings.
