In anticipation for the 25-year anniversary of the release of their debut 3 Feet High & Rising, De La Soul will be sharing their entire music catalog for free on February 14. The music will be available for download from the group’s official site wearedelasoul.com for a 25-hour window starting at 11 a.m. EST, and taken down Saturday at 12 noon. The hip-hop trio spoke with Rolling Stone, and going on to explain the reasoning behind the free music giveaway, Posdnuos went on to say the following:

It’s about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it. Its been too long where our fans haven’t had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them.

With majority of De La’s music suffering from sampling issues, the group’s music hasn’t been allowed to be released through popular digital outlets such as iTunes.

It’s been a trying journey. We’ve been blessed to be in the Library of Congress, but we can’t even have our music on iTunes. We’ve been working very hard to get that solved.

The group is also prepping their six-track EP, Preemium Soul on the Rocks, which will include production from DJ Premier and Pete Rock, as well as their upcoming full-length album, You’re Welcome.

[It's] coming along amazingly. We have tons of music, but we’re our own worst critics…Certain groups have too many ‘yes men.’ In our group, we have too many ‘no men.’ When we look back on some of the stuff we have, we’re like, ‘Yo, we need to just put this out.’ The album is still called You’re Welcome, but we also have this whole other album that we’re working on that…Wooo, I wish I could talk about it.

Be sure to free up space on your hard drives, and be sure to check back in tomorrow if there’s any De La Soul’s music you’ve been looking for.
