De La Soul / 3 Feet High and Rising reissue

Hip-hop classic reissued

Seminal hip-hop group De La Soul have gained control of their back catalogue which will finally be available on streaming from March this year. At the same time, their classic debut 3 Feet High and Rising will be reissued physically, on vinyl, CD and cassette tape.

The 1989 album marked the first of three full-length collaborations with producer Prince Paul, and was a massive commercial and critical success. It contains the singles, ‘Me Myself and I’, ‘The Magic Number’, ‘Buddy’, and ‘Eye Know’.

The album will be available again as a 2LP vinyl set and there’s an array of coloured vinyl options available, in addition to trusty black, depending on where you shop! In fact, the label are going for it because there’s also some coloured cassettes. There’s only one lonely CD although for some reason it’s £16. There’s no bonus material, this reissue is strictly album-only.

3 Feet High and Rising will be reissued physically on 3 March 2023 via AOI/Chrysalis Records.
