    Producer / DJ / part-time MC Vincent Mason a.k.a Maseo a.k.a Plug 3 from iconic Hip-Hop group De La Soul quietly maintains a key spot in Hip-Hop history.   De La Soul burst onto the scene and innovated hip-hop by colouring outside the lines, sampling a diverse array of untouched, previously unsampled artists such as The Turtles, Hall & Oates, and Steely Dan on their critically acclaimed debut "3 Feet High & Rising."   They have been a catalyst for other important acts in hip-hop history as they helped introduce to world to Mos Def, helped propel a Tribe Called Quest with "Buddy", and were among the first major acts to work with deceased hip-hop icon J-Dilla on a major single (when he was known as Jay Dee).   De La is perhaps the "oldest" functioning Hip-Hop group to still truly maintain credibility while not having "fell off" as they continue to stay relevant collaborating with Snoop Dogg, 2 Chainz, MF Doom, Ghostface Killah, Roc Marciano and Madlib among others.   Their "downtime" music release within the gap of their their most recent albums (2003 and 2016) was also innovative; put out by Nike, who also released a De La Soul limited edition Dunk sneaker which sold out at retail immediately and can now be found on Ebay for upwards of $500.   Their biggest song to date came from left field somewhat: Damon Albarn from Blur was such a fan that he enlisted De La to participate on his 2nd Gorillaz album which gave birth to "Feel Good Inc" - the biggest single ever for both De La and Gorillaz. The track was featured on a massive Ipod worldwide TV campaign and won both acts a Grammy the same night as their ensemble Grammy performance which also included Madonna. De La toured with Gorillaz worldwide where Damon would have entire stadiums chant Maseo.
