"Thru Ya City" is the third and final single to be released by hip hop group De La Soul from their fifth album, Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump. The song was produced by Jay Dee, and features D.V. Alias Khrist. Unlike the first two singles from the album, this single received no video, and very little promotion. This practice is not entirely unusual; most third, or fourth singles receive modest promotion as most albums tend to sell the most copies between the first and second singles, thus the third, and fourth singles are generally not as important. The song was used in the 2001 film Made. It samples "Summer in the City" by Lovin' Spoonful.
