[Video] De La Soul: “Get Away” (feat. The Spirit of Wu Tang)

De La Soul is back! Following their new motion to release a new song every month this year, “Get Away” gets the music video treatment. Featuring a Wu-Tang and RZA hook sample, the classic group delivers a statement on modern hip hop, opening the song with a strong proclamation: “And like the Wu, we bring it to you in the purest form/ We reside far away from the norms.”

The video, which you can watch below, was directed by Lenny Bass and Kris Merc. The group is digital overlaid on a Rubik’s Cube while they deliver their verses. There’s some really good post-production here with the digital effects used with the Rubik’s Cube, especially with how the concept matches the lyrical content. De La Soul’s back, and they’re ready to take their hip hop crowns back.
