25 years since the release of their world-conquering debut album, 3 Feet High And Rising, De La Soul return to the UK for a run of shows in May 2014
Widely considered a hip-hop masterpiece, De La Soul's debut album, 3 Feet High And Rising, was hailed as the future of the genre. A colourful burst of neo-psychedelic samples and playful wordplay plus the trio's trademark witty skits and lyrics, the album sounded like nothing else in hip-hop. True pioneers, De La Soul, eschewed the obvious influences of old-school rap or funk and spread their net wider, taking in pop, jazz, reggae and psychedelia.

Album of the Year on its release - a measure of 3 Feet High and Rising's cross-over appeal was the fact that it was voted ALBUM OF THE YEAR by NME. De La Soul continue to garner awards, more recently in 2006, when they won a Grammy for their collaboration with Gorillaz on the single "Feel Good Inc" - Watch the video HERE
De La Soul's latest single, their first in nine years, was released in May 2013. "Get Away (feat. the Spirit of the Wu)" is a slice of brilliantly caustic hip-hop matched with a stunning video. Described by Rolling Stone as 'remaining one of hip-hop's most innovative audiovisual crews', check their video premiere HERE
25 years on from its initial release, POSDNUOS, TRUGOY THE DOVE and PASEMASTER MASE are back to remind us that 3 really is the Magic Number.
