3 Feet High and Rising is the debut studio album by American hip hop group De La Soul, released on March 3, 1989 by Tommy Boy Records. It marked the first of three full-length collaborations with producer Prince Paul, which would become the critical and commercial peak of both parties. The album title comes from the Johnny Cash song "Five Feet High and Rising". The album contains the singles "Me Myself and I", "The Magic Number", "Buddy", and "Eye Know".

De La Soul were making a point about the power of culture to mobilize people to action or immobilize them with fear. It was an idea they explored more explicitly on their fable, Tread Water. By contrast, the processes of sampling and layering on 3 Feet High and Rising and other hip-hop classics of that era demonstrate the opposite: expansively, giddily c, even-values. Pos’s production on Eye Know put Steely Dan into conversation with Otis Redding and the Mad Lads, his work on Say No Go Hall and Oates with the Detroit Emeralds.

Not only did 3 Feet High and Rising place the group in a rarefied space musically, it also paved the way for more diverse and much deeper sampling: for better and for worse. Months after the album went gold, lawyers for 1960s classic rock group The Turtles filed a lawsuit against De La for using the first four bars of their 1968 song You Showed Me on the song "Transmitting Live From Mars.

De La Soul's Three Feet High and Rising. My teenage years were a nightmare: cursed with a sunny disposition, easygoing nature and ability to make friends easily, it seemed as if everyone understood m. et whenever I looked around all the cool kids were channelling misery and angst through Morrissey and Cure albums

De La Soul's debut album 3 Feet High and Rising is a rap landmark: A free-thinking, kaleidoscopic record that expanded hip-hop's palette with goofy sketches, socially-conscious lyrics and samples from Johnny Cash and Steely Dan. Songs like Eye Know and The Magic Number are classics, but you cannot stream them. The same goes for the follow-up, De La Soul Is Dead, and almost all of the band's subsequent releases. It's really heart-wrenching," says Kelvin Mercer, aka Posdnuos, De La Soul's laid-back, loquacious spokesman.

A hip-hop classic through-and-though; De La Soul's debut record was a breath of positivity and happiness during hip-hop's most rebellious and dark phases. Whilst they aren't the most technical performers, they just ooze personality with every line they deliver. The production throughout from Prince Paul is fantastic even almost 30 years later; fantastic sampling and beat construction. Whilst there are a couple moments that are a little dry and a few questionable skits, this is an essential.

For some reason I always (wrongly) assumed the album title "3 Feet High And Rising " was a Marijuana reference as in a growing plant when in actual fact its from a Johnny Cash song '5 Feet High And Rising ". Essential.
