De La Soul have teamed up with the folks over at TIDAL on their triumphant new music video, “Royalty Capes.” The track, from their 2016 album, And The Anonymous Nobody… features hip-hop poet Gina Loring who recites the interlude between verses from Dave Jolicoeur a.k.a. Trugoy the Dove and Kelvin Mercer a.k.a. Plug One.
The music video was shot in nine different cities and follows the trio around the globe, from Rotterdam, Holland, to The Meadows Music Festival in Queens, New York. “Royalty Capes” opens with a brief intro from Jolicoeur— who talks about having been hospitalized for “congestive heart failure.”
“I’m ready just to get back to the stage,” Jolicoeur says in the video. “I miss that. I love traveling and I love being around my guys and I want that back.”
