3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of...

Redirected from Three Years, Five Months and Two Days in the Life of...

3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of... is the debut album by American hip hop group Arrested Development, released on March 24, 1992 (see 1992 in music). The album's chart success was the beginning of the popularization of Southern rap. 3 Years, 5 Months & Days in the Life Of... stood in stark contrast to the gangsta rap that ruled the hip hop charts in 1992 (such as Dr. Dre's The Chronic), in its focus on Christian spirituality, peace and love. The album's title refers to the length of time it took Arrested Development to get a record contract.
