Evan Serpick from RollingStone.com sat down with De La Soul to talk about their entire classic debut album 3 Feet High And Rising. This is very good read in which they guide us through the full journey, track by track. I spotted this last week but forgot to post it here.
It’s been 20 years since De La Soul introduced a funkier, sunnier brand of hip-hop with the genre-broadening classic 3 Feet High and Rising, an album that went on to inspire legions of innovative followers from Digable Planets and Mos Def to OutKast and Kanye West. Mase, Posdnous and Trugoy looked back at 3 Feet and shared some of their plans to commemorate the LP’s anniversary in an exclusive track-by-track interview with Rolling Stone.
