themselves as one of the most original, authentic and creative groups in hip-hop,

second album further fanned the flames; landing on charts around the world,

receiving a five-mic rating in The Source and securing Gold status by the RIAA. To

this day, the project is considered one of the groups best albums to date, having

left fans with several certified classics like, "A Roller Skating Jam Named

Saturdays", "Ring, Ring, Ring (Ha Ha Hey)" and "Keepin' the Faith".

 A note from Chrysalis Records:

Our hearts are heavy as we mourn the passing of David Jude Jolicoeur. Known to fans as

Trugoy the Dove, he helped define hip-hop for generations as one pillar of the seminal

hip-hop trio De La Soul. We were lucky to have so closely witnessed his remarkable talent.

More than that, we are grateful for his friendship. From our Reservoir family to his De La

brothers, his friends and family, and his fans–we send our deepest sympathies. RIP Dave.’ 🕊️
