Product Description


De La's debut represented a new path for hip-hop, a reaction to conventions that had turned into clichés. It was friendly and playful enough to cross over to a pop audience (thanks to Prince Paul's production, which found the funk hiding inside Steely Dan and "Schoolhouse Rock"), but complicated and tough enough to be hugely influential in the hip-hop world. Cryptic but ecstatic, and sometimes sexy (especially the ingenious double-entendre "Buddy"), Trugoy and Posdnuos's lyrics invented a "new style of speak," dense with self-invented slang and metaphors. The hits, including "Say No Go" and "Me Myself And I," are delightful, but the little sketches and sound-experiments between them make the whole disc flow effortlessly. --Douglas Wolk

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, HORRIBLE Re-master Jan. 13 2003
By jas_n
Format:Audio CD
if you are buying this brand new there is a 90% chance you'll get the 20th anniversary remaster with a bonus disc that shares almost the same tracklisting as "De La Remix", the elusive import album.
the original cd was mixed pretty ..low, and this re-master is EVEN LOWER. i popped the original in, turned it down just so i could barely hear the words, put the re-master in and i couldn't hear ANYTHING. tommy boy really ... the guys over on this one.

I would give it a higher rating but YOU CANNOT rip it to itunes or your computer because of the god damn DRM protection, this CD is protected against piracy.. and ironically it turns out that we are the one that can't rip it, even if we buy it.

great album, i think that it has kind of a slow start, but after that EVERY track is awesome. (I would have preferred less skits)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent old school! Feb. 13 2012

I love this CD! The songs are excellent, important and honest. There is no gratuitous violence or sex - although it does discuss both, and it does not shy away from important issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Ft. High and Rising May 17 2011
Format:Audio CD
More than just a landmark debut hip-hop album, De La Soul's 3 ft. High and Rising is truely a piece of art. With dynamite samples like the classic "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay", Cymande's wonderful "Bra", and the obscurely magnificent mash up of "Stand by Me" into "Little 'Bit of Soap", this record has it all. I won't even begin to touch on the lyrics, as the character maximum for reviews is 5,000,000. In short, this is one of the most cohesive, under-rated, seminal hip-hop albums of all time. Would highly recommend to anyone who yearns for the day when hip-hop still had meaning, heart, and soul.

God bless you Posdnuos, Trugoy, Pasemaster Mase and Prince Paul- AKA - Plug One, Plug Two, Plug Three and Plug Four.

5.0 out of 5 stars rising and rising July 12 2004
By Davy
Format:Audio CD
next to the beastie's paul's boutique, my favorite rap album. it's just so celebratory and fun. just as with most rap albums, the skits are interesting and occasionally humorous the first time around but get exceedingly tedious upon subsequent listens. nevertheless, there are PLENTY of actual songs here, and the vast majority of them are fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hip Hop Classic July 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is right up there with It Takes A Nation of Millions, Straight Out of Compton, and Raising Hell as one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. It's a very unique album, as it's full of humor, silly characters, and a message of peace and love that is sort of a throwback to the Woodstock generation. There are a lot of great samples on this albums as well, and after you listen to this you should take the time to seek out the original artists that this group used. If you do that you'll have a greater appreciation for good funk and 70's soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars a very long joke... June 23 2004
By B
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to hate on this CD. It's impossibly euphoric, experimental in a youthful and drunken manner instead of a artistically arrogant way. If you don't mind that EVERY OTHER TRACK IS A F---ING INTERLUDE, and there are probably less than ten full length rap songs on the entire thing, you should be able to get into the real spirit of this album. The most interesting part of the whole thing are the cryptic symbolism of tracks like Tread Water, which show off the underplayed and unique calculated nature of De La Soul's lyrical style and subculture. Each version of Plug Tunin', as well as Buddy (also check out the single version found on the recently released Timeless collection) are very complex bits. This group can be very thought provoking without flaunting it, but since it can be very hard to see past the joking atmosphere of this album, many people misconstrued the constant references to daisies and thought De La Soul was not to be taken seriously. This is obviously not the case. Their unabashedly innovative forms, as well as the far reaching sampling sensibilites, are proof of their place in the rap hall of fame.
