De La Soul’s Music, Is Finally Streaming.
After years of fighting to get their music
on streaming platforms, the day has
finally arrived for De La Soul.
The achievement is bittersweet since bandmate Trugoy the Dove died just
weeks ago at the age of 54.
The group addressed their streaming troubles in 2019, saying Tommy Boy Records declined to get sample clearance for their songs.
Tommy Boy—Tom Silverman, in particular—didn’t think that '3 Feet High and Rising' was going to do well at all. Because of that reason, they decided not to clear stuff, Trugoy the Dove, via 2019 interview on 'Sway In the Morning'.
Later in 2019, it seemed the group would finally release their music on streaming services, but they decided not to go through with the deal since they'd only receive "pennies" on the dollar.

On one end I’m happy you no
longer have to suffer the pain of
your condition.., Vincent Lamont Mason Jr., aka Maseo, via letter to Trugoy the Dove.
... but on the other hand I’m extremely upset at the fact that you’re not here to celebrate and enjoy what we worked and fought so hard to achieve, Vincent Lamont Mason Jr., aka Maseo, via letter to Trugoy the Dove
