Who’s really ill?: “De La Soul are back and angry about hip-hop” claims the subheader, but really they’re not, just realistic and with the healthy cynicism of men who proved what they had to prove a while ago. Tom Cox (but of course) asks a few leading questions to get the replies he wants and ends up with a patronising bit of analysis (just release another 3 Feet High And Rising, eh?). Readers left as irritated by this as I was might want to go refresh themselves by listening to De La’s splendid new single, “Ooooh”, as uncomplicated, agenda-free and good-natured a piece of hip-hop as you’ll hear all year.
