De La Soul, the legendary rap group, paid tribute to their bandmate Trugoy The Dove with a performance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” featuring The Roots. Trugoy The Dove passed away last month at 54 due to several health issues, and the surviving members of the group were joined by The Roots with Black Thought standing in for Dove’s verses on the track. The performance was a tribute to Trugoy’s legacy and his impact on music. Prior to the performance, surviving members Posdnuos and Maseo opened up about the 15-year process of bringing their catalogue to streaming services and reflected on their early days in Long Island and recording their 1989 debut ‘3 Feet High And Rising’. Last month, the duo broke their initial social media silence with two Instagram posts paying tribute to their bandmate. In the posts, they spoke about Trugoy’s contribution to their music and the impact he had on the group’s history. The performance on” The Tonight Show” was a testament to the enduring legacy of De La Soul, and Trugoy’s influence on the music industry.
