Limited double vinyl LP pressing released to coincide with the album's 25th Anniversary. 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of... is the debut album by Arrested Development. It was released in 1992 to widespread critical acclaim, and stood in stark contrast to much of the hip hop around at the time. It helped them become the first rap group to win a Grammy for New Artist, and featured hits like 'Tennessee', 'People Everyday' and 'Mr. Wendel'. The album's chart success was the beginning of the popularization of Southern hip hop. The album's title refers to the length of time it took Arrested Development to get a record contract.
