De La Soul 3 Feet High And Rising

Jim and Greg explore De La Soul's 1989 3 Feet High And Rising, one of the most enduring albums from the Golden Age of Hip-Hop. It was a recording that broke the mold of what hip-hop could be, utilizing Prince Paul's artful, eclectic production, and Mase, Trugoy, and Posdnuos' unique style.

Greg notes that it's an album that celebrated uniqueness, and made it okay for rappers to be“nerdy”rather than "street". The hosts also dig into the story of the breakout hit from 3 Feet High and Rising, Me, Myself, and I. They also explore how the album's 200 samples set the stage for a decades long legal battle that impacted the sound of hip hop for years to come.
