Album of the Day: “3 Feet High and Rising”

Sit back and enjoy the album’s breakout single “Me, Myself and I” featuring a brief cameo by Prince Paul, one of the album’s producers who went on to forge his own solo carer in the 1990s:

I feel sorry for anyone who didn’t grow up with old school rap. The music was so clever and original that even purple-haired “alternative” kids like me and my friends dug it.
