The legendary record label Tommy Boy Records wants to clear its name by responding to the boycotts by Hip Hop icons such as Nas, Questlove and of course, De La Soul, who alleges that the record company with the B-boy logo robbed the trio of millions over the course of three decades.
According to a statement made to Variety Magazine, the label has decided to postpone the release of De La’s catalog amid the recent allegations.
“Because Tommy Boy has not had the opportunity to sit down together with De La Soul and finalize our negotiations — something we’ve wanted to do for months — we have decided to postpone the digital release of their catalog scheduled for tomorrow,” the statement reads. “We know fans are eager to hear these amazing recordings and we are hopeful for a quick resolution.”
Artists such as Nas and Questlove immediately jumped to the defense of the 3Ft. High and Rising trio.
