(Newser) – De La Soul has found a pretty cool way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its first hip-hop album, 3 Feet High and Rising: The group is making its entire catalog free for download for 25 hours, reports Rolling Stone. Fans can get to it through the group's website until 11am EST tomorrow. "It's about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it," says one of the trio, Posdnuos. That hasn't always been easy because the band's heavy use of samples has led to copyright headaches, explains Rolling Stone. Slate, meanwhile, picks out 10 De La Soul songs perfect for Valentine's Day.
