Tre Mason, Son of ‘De La Soul’s Maseo, Is A Young Upcoming College Football Star (Video)

Ah… kids today… with their Waka Flocka music and their NCAA Division I football scholarships… and WHOOAAAA! That’s right! Tre Mason, Auburn University’s young return man and running back has definitely made his pop proud…on the field, at least… Hahaaa! See, the second-year Freshman really is a Waka Flocka fan; though his dad (DJ Maseo of the legendary group De La Soul) has caught him listening to some Golden Era Hip-Hop on occasion.

I caught commentary about Mason as Auburn won its nail-biter against Lousiana-Monroe last weekend. After the game, I searched the ‘Net and found articles and video (like that shared above) on the up-and-coming gridiron star. Good stuff. Keep it up, kid! Read the nice article on Tre linked after the jump.

Full disclosure: Though I do wish the best for young Tre, I cannot root for him every game week. You see, I am a two-time alum of The University of Alabama (Auburn’s cross-state rival). See you at the Iron Bowl, young Mason. Heh heh hehhh… Roll Tide!

On March 2nd in Chicago, Puma held a special B-Boy competition & in-store with Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest, Maseo Of De La Soul, & live instrumentalist, DJ, & producer AraabMuzik.  Phife Dawg took the time to sign autographs for fans before launching into a 7-8 song performance at The Mid & was later joined by Maseo of De La Soul who hopped on stage to rock with Phife for a few joints. DJ Rasta Root served as the DJ for the evening alongside Maseo before producer AraabMuzik performed a set doing live beat creations & remixes on his beat machine. The video directed by Konee Rock is expertly edited but condensed down & many parts of what took place that night were left on the digital cutting room floor.  Overall the turnout was great & it was definitely a good day in Chi-town.

De La Soul To Release The ‘Artificial Intelligence III’ Album This Year (Video)

Maseo of De La Soul recently chopped it up in an interview about their new album Artificial Intelligence III in which the trio plans to drop this year. In this interview Maseo reminds us all why we love De La Soul so much & why they are such an iconic group in music period. They are artists & musicians who do what they feel first & foremost. Maseo makes some very valid points about New York hip hop too in which I wholeheartedly agree. On a side note…. Maseo’s laugh is wickedly scary. Reminds me of a scene from a classic horror flick.
