The group's third studio release, "Buhloone Mindstate", was released on September 1993 21. With this album, the group developed a new sound as they continued to grow stylistically and musically.

There were several moments on the album that showed the band had matured.
"I Be Blowin'" was a change of pace, as the track was an instrumental featuring the saxophone playing of Maceo Parker. The introspective "I Am I Be" showed De La Soul in their greatest self-reference to date. "Long Island Wildin'" was a collaboration with Japanese hip-hop artists Kan Takagi (Major Force) and the trio Scha Dara Parr (SDP). The album's first single, "Breakadawn," used a sample of Michael Jackson's "I Can't Help It" and Smokey Robinson's "Quiet Storm."

De La Soul collaborated with Guru from Gang Starr for the first time on "Patti Dooke," and female MC Shortie No Mas, who was featured on many of the album's tracks, especially "In The Woods." The album ended with an old school Biz Markie collaboration called "Stone Age".

The album was a huge success with critics and Rolling Stone listed it as one of the best hip-hop albums of all time.
