David Jude Jolicoeur (born 21 September 1968), better known by his stage names TrugoyTrugoy the Dove and more recently Dave, is an American rapper, record producer and one third of the hip hop trio De La Soul.

Jolicoeur, Vincent Mason and Kelvin Mercer were friends who attended the same high school in the Amityville area of Long Island during the 1980s. After they decided to form De La Soul, each member re-christened themselves with an unusual stage name (Trugoy the Dove, P.A. Pasemaster Mase and Posdnuos, respectively). Early in the group's career, Jolicoeur sported a unique style of African medallions, peace signs and uneven dreadlocks known as the "De La Do".

Trugoy has had few collaborations outside of the group, with his most notable appearance being on the song "Award Tour" by fellow Native Tongues members A Tribe Called Quest.
