De La Soul Is Dead is the second studio album by the American hip-hop group De La Soul, released on May 14, 1991. The album was produced by Prince Paul, whose work on 3 Feet High and Rising was highly praised by music critics. The album was one of the first to receive a five-mic rating in the Hip hop magazine The Source, and the album was also selected as one of The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums in 1998. The album's cover refers to the death of the "Da.I.S.Y." (Da Inner Sound, Y'all) age or a distancing from several cultures including hippies and mainstream hip-hop.
