Here at Potholes, De La Soul means an awful lot to us. Besides the obvious reference, a lot of their ideology has been embodied in our own mission statement. Their debut album 3 Feet High & Rising was an incredibly important album for sample-based hip-hop and the culture as a whole. To help us celebrate its pure genius, the crew has uncovered the original video press kid from 1989. With cameos from DMC, Big Daddy Kane, KRS-One, Red Alert and more, it was pretty clear that even the time period’s best MCs were excited about De La Soul’s music.
Watch the video below and let us know what 3 Feet High & Rising means to you.
