De La Soul
3 Feet High and Rising
RMM / Chysalis 048 - 2 LP re-issue on limited MAGENTA vinyl! 180g - comes with comic insert 

3 Feet High and Rising is the debut studio album by hip hop trio De La Soul (Posdnuos, Trugoy, and Maseo) and was released on March 3, 1989. It marked the first of three full-length collaborations with producer Prince Paul, which would become the critical and commercial peak of both parties. Critically, as well as commercially, the album was a success. It contains the singles, "Me Myself and I", "The Magic Number, " "Buddy, " and "Eye Know". The album title came from the Johnny Cash song "Five Feet High and Rising". Released amid the 1989 boom in gangsta rap, which gravitated towards hardcore, confrontational, violent lyrics, De La Soul's uniquely positive style made them an oddity beginning with the first single, "Me, Myself and I". Their positivity meant many observers labeled them a "hippie" group, based on their declaration of the "D.A.I.S.Y. Age" (Da. Inner. Sound. Yall). Prince Paul's eclectic sampling and production style makes 3 Feet High and Rising a must-own for any golden-era hip-hop fan.
