Formed in 1987 in Long Island, New York this hip hop band was one of the seminal groups of the genre. They are known for their intricate and intelligent lyrics along with their ingenious sampling. De La Soul has been recognized as one of the originators of the jazz/hip hop fusion.
From the time that they released their debut album "3 Feet High and Rising" they captured the attention of hip hop fans. The single "Me, Myself and I" was a huge hit. It was such a success that they achieved cross-over success and that album has been long thought of as a masterpiece of hip hop music. Their music has influenced such artists as Black Eyed Peas and Digable Planets.
