While rap vanguards De La Soul have always been one of the most album-oriented artists in the hip-hop universe, their career as traced by their singles is no less impressive. The trio first earned underground notice with the bouncing anti-"byte"ing 12" "Potholes in My Lawn" and even grazed the pop top 40 in 1989--at a time when fewer rap songs did that--with the Parliament-thumping "Me, Myself & I." Their history up to 2003 (when this compilation was dropped) includes classics like the disco-fied "Rollerskating Jam Called 'Saturdays'," the minimalistic "Ego Trippin' (Part 2)," the introspective and jazzy "Stakes is High," and the poppy ode to fuller-figured women, "Baby Phat."
