David Jude Jolicoeur (born September 21, 1971, in Brooklyn, New York), also known under the stage name Trugoy the Dove and more recently Dave, is an American rapper, producer, and one third of groundbreaking hip hoptrioDe La Soul.
All three members of De La Soul have a variety of known aliases and nicknames used throughout the group's career. The following are the most significant:
Trugoy – The word "Trugoy" is backwards for "yogurt", because he likes yogurt. Jolicoeur once said in a video that, "I enjoyed eating yogurt. I mean, I eat it a lot."
Plug Two – An early concept for 3 Feet High and Rising involved music being transmitted from Mars by three microphone plugs (each one representing a member of the group). Though this idea was abandoned, the titles "Plug One", "Plug Two" and "Plug Three" still became relevant on the album.
