This month (2nd July more precisely) marks the 20th anniversary of the release of De La Soul's fourth studio LP 'Stakes is High'. A departure from the sonic identity of previous long play offerings, the album addresses social issues and the changing state of hip hop in '96 over production from the likes of the late great Jay Dee and ATCQ collaborator Skeff Anselm among others. Guest vocals come courtesy of Common and a young Mos Def. In celebration we've teamed up with www.mixcloud.com/WaxPoetics to present this exclusive mixtape featuring tracks from the LP, alternate versions, remixes and of course original sample material used in the the creation of this much loved classic.
