“I do a lot of things that don’t make sense, What I don’t do is ride the fence.”
Artists and athletes changing their names always creates a pickle. I want to refer to them by their proper name, simply out of respect, but a large part of me remains hesitant on some “His mama named him Clay, so I’m gonna call him Clay” © Coming To America type stubbornness. Not 100% sure if De La’s Plug 1 and Plug 2 instituted the name switch to First Serve for contractual purposes or to signify that First Serve would sound and look different what we’ve come to expect from key members of the old Native Tongues collective. Makes no matter as long as the key factor – the music being quality – remains. “Must B The Music,” no Deion.
De La Soul’s Plug 1 & Plug 2 Present First Serve will be out April 2nd on Duck Down Music.
