3 Feet High and Rising

3 Feet High and Rising es el influyente disco de debut del trío estadounidense de hip hop De La Soul, publicado en 1989.

El álbum marcó la primera de tres colaboraciones con el productor Prince Paul, lo que se convertiría en el mayor éxito de crítica y ventas para ambas partes. Suele ser situado de modo habitual por la crítica en las listas de "mejores álbumes".[1] Robert Christgau dijo del disco que "era diferente de cualquier álbum de rap que tu o cualquier persona haya oído antes."[2]

Un éxito tanto de crítica como de ventas, el álbum contiene los conocidos sencillos "Me Myself and I", "The Magic Number", "Buddy" y "Eye Know". El 23 de octubre de 2001, el álbum fue reeditado junto a un disco extra de caras B y tomas alternativas. El título del álbum se inspira en una línea de la canción de Johnny Cash "Five Feet High and Rising".
