"Stakes Is High" De La Soul's fourth full length album was released on June 18, 1996. "Stakes Is High" dealt with many topics from the current state of "hiphop" to the commercialization of the "hiphop" culture.
Remember this was a 1996 album, here we are in 2013... Seem to us that De La Soul gave us a jewel with "Stakes Is High."

?uestlove informed you about this episode from "The Cosby Show" in his recent interview with Nardwuar. In this scene, Stevie Wonder greets the Huxtables as they enter his recording session. The invitation to the studio came about after Stevie's car accident with Denise. So being the researchers that we are, here's the clip from "The Cosby Show" which ?uestlove was referring to in his interview with Nardwuar.
In this exclusive in-depth interview conducted by HardKnockTV, Scarface talks to Nick Huff Barili about the current state of Hip Hop and that he loves Kendrick Lamar but that older white executives that are in control of Hip Hop are not in touch with the streets and don't care about the culture. Scarface goes on to say that he thinks its a conspiracy to make black people look stupid and brainwash a generation of hip hoppers with "this crud".
Scarface's advice to upcoming artists is to uphold the integrity of the craft and not to let the executives dictate our culture.
Scarface also talks about touring and recording with Tupac in this interview as well.
