Recognized as a classic fusion of Hip Hop and jazz, Do You Want More?!!!??! was the first major full length debut from the Philly-based group.
Produced primarily by The Grand Negaz and Questlove, the singles the led the album was the catchy “You Ain’t Fly”, “The Lesson Part 1”, which introduced Black Thought’s lyrical protegé, the one and only Dice Raw.
Commercially, the album didn’t do the number doing its era, however the album was certified Gold by the RIAA more than two decades after the year of its release(2015).
