  1. "That element of not knowing what you're doing ... it felt like '3 Feet High and Rising'"
    "Drawn" surprisingly opens with a hypnotic, five-minute melody flush with strings and Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano's coo before De La Soul finally appear over the track's closing minute. On De La Soul's Facebook, Nagano described "Drawn" as "a dreamy journey about not taking anything for granted in life. About love and being lost in something dangerously good."
    De La Soul member Kelvin "Posdnous" Mercer previously mentioned the experimental "Drawn" as an example of why they decided to crowd-fund their new album, raising over $600,000 from fans. "We couldn't do that on a regular label," the rapper said. "How you gonna present them with a song like this? They may think it's beautiful but then it's like, 'Okay, so, there's no chorus. For maybe the first three minutes of the record, you're nowhere to be found.'"

    And the Anonymous Nobody... (stylized as and the Anonymous Nobody...) is the ninth full-length studio album by American hip hop group De La Soul, their first full-length album since The Grind Date.

    The album has guest features from 2 Chainz, Damon Albarn, David Byrne, Estelle, Little Dragon, Jill Scott, Justin Hawkins, Pete Rock and Roc Marciano. It received positive reviews by critics, and peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200. The record was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2017 Grammy Awards
