De La Soul are celebrating their 25 years together this year, and Wednesday (7/16), Pos, Dave and Maseo threw a party at NYC’s Irving Plaza. There were a few special guests —Q-Tip came out for their classic track together, “Buddy,” with Common as well, and Dres from Black Sheep made an appearance too. Opening the night were Dillon Cooper, and Billy Ray who is on Maseo’s label. Pictures from the night are in this post.

Common is playing a free show on Monday (7/21) at The Gramercy Theatre which celebrates his new album Nobody’s Smiling. Wristbands are available at the Gramercy starting at 10 AM.
