The De La Soul trio told Uncut the story of the song: Posdnous: "We came up with 'The Magic Number' working in Mase's basement. We took the main sample from (Bob Dorough's) 'Three Is A Magic Number' on Multiplication Rock, then took Double Dee & Steinski's 'Lesson 3' for the drums. Pasemaster Mase, continued: "We sampled them at my mother's house, on this little keyboard we had, a Casio SK1. It didn't even have an input on it so you could get a clear sample, you just had to put it right next to the speaker.
De La Soul (/ˌdeɪ lɑː ˈ-/) is an American hip hop trio formed in 1987 in the Amityville area of Long Island, New York. They are best known for their eclectic sampling, quirky lyrics, and their contributions to the evolution of the jazz rap and alternative hip hop subgenres. The members are Posdnuos, Trugoy and Maseo. The three formed the group in high school and caught the attention of producer Prince Paul with a demo tape of the song "Plug Tunin'"
Lyrics to "The Magic Number" song by De La Soul: (Got to have soul!) 3 That's the Magic Number Yes it is It's the magic number Somewhere in t. .Focus is formed by flaunts to the soul Souls who flaunt styles gain praises by pounds Common are speakers who are never scrolls Scrolls written daily creates a new sound Listeners listen 'cause this here is wisdom Wisdom of a Speaker, a Dove and a Plug Set aside a legal substance to feed 'em For now get 'em high off this dialect drug
POS: 3 That's the Magic Number Yes it is It's the magic number Somewhere in this hip hop soul community Was born 3 Mase Dove and me And that's the magic number (What does it all mean?) Difficult preaching is Posdnuos' pleasure Pleasure and preaching starts in the heart Something that stimulates the music in my measure Measure in my music raised in three parts Casually see but don't do like the Soul 'Cause seein' and doin' are actions for monkeys Doin' hip hop hustle, no rock and roll Unless your name's Brewster, 'cause Brewsters are funky.
