RIP Trugoy the Dove (of De La Soul) – A Word is Bond Tribute

This sucks. Trugoy the Dove aka Dave from the iconic group De La Soul has passed away. Gone way too soon. 

It’s crazy too because the group recently got the rights to their master recordings back. They were on the eve of dropping their entire catalogue on all digital platforms. They have CDs, cassettes, and vinyl on sale on their website too. So make sure you go support!

I had to make this tribute mix because I am such a huge fan of the group. In fact, my son and I were jamming out to Me, Myself, and I just last week.

Rest in Peace, Trugoy the Dove!
