Leaders Of The New School planning group comeback

Leaders Of The New School planning group comeback

Leaders of the New School -- one of the most influential hip hop groups of the late 80's and early 90's -- are planning to take back the throne with their first album in a quarter of a century.

“De La [Soul] came back... a lot of other cats is comin’ back…I see like Edo. G’s coming back with a new album, Common still is bringin’ it, Masta Ace, me, you know, and we got some Leaders songs that we working to take it to another level," band member Dinco D revealed on a recent episode of The Library with Tim Einenkel. Dinco D and fellow Leader of the New School Charlie Brown appeared on the show to discuss Dinco's recently released solo album, Cameo Flows, as well as each artists' future plans.

"We’ve got [Leaders of the New School] material already in the can, that’s done…some songs that are done.” Charlie Brown said. "Before, it was easier for us to work on material because we were all on the same page, and we were all around each other constantly, now, we’re at different levels of life... Dinco’s a father. Busta’s a father. I’m not a father, but I’m an uncle. We got some stuff ready though for the world to hear.”

You can hear the full interview with Dinco D and Charlie Brown on The Library With Tim Einenkel. The two musicians also discuss a variety of other topics, including their thoughts on modern hip hop, and the influence that fellow Long Island rappers Public Enemy had on them.

Leaders of the New School were one of the most popular hip hop acts of the early 90's, known for their infectious, charming rhymes and excellent production work by the legendary Bomb Squad crew. Despite their success, the group disbanded after just two critically acclaimed albums when each member of the group -- Dinco D, Charlie Brown, Cut Monitor Milo, and of course, the unstoppable Busta Rhymes -- went their separate ways to pursue solo careers. Since then, the group has come together to guest on a track on one of Busta's solo albums and has reunited on stage multiple times for special live performances, but they haven't released an album together as The Leaders of the New School since 1993's T.I.M.E.
