3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of... is the debut album by American Hip Hop group Arrested Development, released in 1992. The album's chart success was the beginning of the popularization of Southern Hip Hop.

The album stood in stark contrast to the gangsta rap that ruled the Hip Hop charts in 1992, in its focus on spirituality, peace and love. It was voted as the best album of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll. The album's title refers to the length of time it took Arrested Development to get a record contract.

The album charted at #3 in the UK Charts, and #7 in the Billboard 200. Charting singles that came off the album are "People Everyday", "Mr. Wendal" and "Tennessee". The latter song is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list.
