Plug 1 and Plug 2 are First Serve

I understand that De La Soul’s Plug 1 and 2, Pos and Dave, are doing their own project together without Maseo, Plug 3. For the purpose of this concept album they will be First Serve. Pos n’ Dave have created the character aliases Jacob “Pop Life” Barrow and Deen Whittier for the forthcoming self-titled album. The album is a collaboration with French producers team 2 & 4, it charts the story of two Queens NY teenagers who spend their time in a basement dreaming of making it big in Hip Hop. Check out the trailer above which sees our heroes deep in character and listen below to “Pushin’ Aside, Pushin’ Along”. A new track which samples the opening piano stabs of the Thomas the Tank engine theme. I look forward to this project; Pos and Dave are always good value for money and its nice to see them trying something new although I am unsure if I am happy about Maseo's absence but any De La is better than none. Now would it be too much to ask for that third installment of the Art of Intelligence series and maybe a rerelease of the Clear Lake Auditorium EP ?
