Get ready to journey back to the golden era of hip-hop with the 2023 reissue of De La Soul's iconic album, "3 Feet High and Rising."

Featuring the hit singles "Me Myself and I," "The Magic Number," "Buddy," and "Eye Know," this album became an instant classic and solidified De La Soul's place in music history. The title "3 Feet High and Rising" pays homage to Johnny Cash's "Five Feet High and Rising," infusing the album with a sense of poetic connection to musical roots.
"3 Feet High and Rising" received widespread critical acclaim and numerous accolades. Rolling Stone's 200 Essential Rock Records and The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums both recognized its significance in the music world.

De La Soul's sampling prowess shines brightly on this record, as they skillfully blend diverse artists like Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, and The Turtles to create a fresh and innovative sound. The album's fusion of hip-hop with jazz influences laid the groundwork for the emergence of 1990s alternative hip hop, leaving an indelible mark on the genre.
This 2023 reissue of "3 Feet High and Rising" comes in a sleek black LP, preserving the original magic while bringing it to a new generation of music enthusiasts.
