De La Soul '3 Feet High & Rising' (3/3/89)

De La Soul 3 Feet High & Rising Tower Records Advert

De La Soul's '3 Feet High & Rising' was released on 3/3/89 - a cool 28 years ago! From the breakout single, 'Me Myself & I,' to 'Potholes In My Lawn' and 'Buddy,' what an incredible and original full-length from the most-consistent and most-loved group in all of hip-hop history. When I say that my favorite groups are Gang Starr & Tribe, it's already acknowledging that De La Soul are the OGs and I don't wanna talk about it in fear I may jinx it and they'll break up, lol. You'll never hear a bad word about De La, that's part of their legacy and I'm glad to be a day one. Make sure you pick up last year's 'And the Anonymous Nobody' and listen to the mix Wax Poetics & Chris Read put together for the 25th anniversary in 2014.
