Every Sunday, Pitchfork revisits and takes a deep look at a noteworthy album from the past. This Sunday’s revisit is De La Soul’s groundbreaking 1989 album: “3 Feet High and Rising”.
As Pitchfork explains, “The album sounded like a hip-hop version of the novelist Dos Passos’ America, crowded with voices, rhythms, rhymes, and the wit, joy, and pain of becoming aware of one’s power to change the world. And De La Soul felt like the closest hip-hop equivalent to Parliament and Funkadelic: high-concept, hilariously genuine, generously human.”
