Album title: 3 Feet High and Rising (1989)
Song: Plug Tunin'
"Dazed at the sight of a method
Dying at the death of a neverending verse
Gasping and swallowing every last letter
Vocalised liquid holds the quench of your thirst
Reasons for the rhythm is for causes unknown
Different individuals are dazzled with the showbiz
Auditions are gathered but the soul would just rather
Hold a count at three and in the end leave it as it is
Flow to the sway of my do-re-mi
Leaving are fixed lunatics who will hawk
Words are sent to the vents of humans
Then converted to a phrase called talk
Musical notes will send a new motto
Every last poem is recited at noon
Focus is set, let your polaroids click
As they capture the essence of a naughty noise called

I used to be crazy about De la soul
See you wrong for making me show my age -- I loved Me, Myself and I off this same album. I liked PM Dawn too who had a similar hippie hip hop vibe (loved, loved, loved Memory Bliss) -- awwww man, time to pull out the cassettes and 8-tracks! Hee...have a blessed weekend!
See it was doing that time in the 80's that real singing happened. I even listen to some 70's music that is timeless.
I like De La Soul!! But I really like one of their most recent songs, I believe its called "shopping bags"? I'm not sure, but its a good song with a good message!
Man, that brings me back. :-)
Man, I have their best of cd. I'm still excited about De La!
Haa haa! I know I show my age all the time. You don't want me to really pull out the Stax. :)
My God...I agree! That's why I have my own collection.
I haven't heard the new. I'm stuck somewhere in the early 90's. :)
Yeah, back in the day. Those were some interesting times.
Any man who quotes my favorite all-time hiphop album, 3 Feet High and Rising, is a man worth knowing.
Don't you miss Hip Hop like this?!! I mean intelligent, thought provoking, phat beats and they tackled social issues!
I forgot De La Soul! I'm goign to have to download some of their stuff tonite!
How can you forget De La Soul? :)
Ooh, that brought back memories. I must download some De La Soul. Thanks for the bday greeting!
I have the best of CD, but I need to purchase 3 Feet High and Rising again. The last time I owned it was when it was out on cassette.
i see you chillin in your bboy stance
