Songfacts®:

  • 3 Feet High and Rising opens with this skit featuring De la Soul as contestants on a game show. "'Intro', the game show thing, the idea cropped up when we were mixing down, the recording supposedly finished," Posdnuos explained to Melody Maker."I don't even remember how that track with all the whispering on it came about. I guess we were just buggin' out, started the tape rolling and there it was."
