"Me Myself and I" is a song by American hip hop trio De La Soul, released as a single in 1989 from their debut studio album, 3 Feet High and Rising. It established the group's characteristic style of combining hip hop with humor and social commentary. The group's frustration concerning their forced-upon hippie label is addressed in the typically dry humor which became the De La Soul trademark. It was the group's only number one on the U.S. R&B chart. The song also topped the U.S. Club Play chart. The song, along with its B-side are structurally similar to Black is Black by The Jungle Brothers.



The song's number 1 position in The Netherlands was spurred by the VPRO television station, who made a documentary about De La Soul after meeting them when they were still unknown. The record label Indisc acquired the local rights from Tommy Boy Records, and immediately seized the opportunity to release the song as a single. It ranked number 46 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop. This song is included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. It is also used in the video games NBA Street V3 and NCAA Football 06. The song was used in the opening scene for the season 5 finale of the HBO original series Entourage. As of August 2016 the song appears in a "Back to School" marketing commercial for Macy's.
