This guest mix for www.mixcloud.com/WhoSampled and www.mixcloud.com/WaxPoetics was first published 3 months ago in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the release of De La Soul’s classic LP ‘Stakes is High’. It has since been listened to tens of thousands of times on Mixcloud & Soundcloud. Here’s what they had to say about it at the time:

This month (2nd July) 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 Wax Poetics 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.
