Profile (courtesy of Wikipedia):

“The album was released on July 2, 1991, for Uptown Records and was produced by Pete Rock, DJ Eddie F, Teddy Riley, Marley Marl and Howie Tee. This marked the group’s first album since the death of member Trouble T Roy, who died almost a year before the album’s release, and several on the album pay tribute to him. Though not as successful as the group’s previous album, Big Tyme, the album was able to reach Platinum status and made it to number 21 on the Billboard 200 and number 5 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The following singles also charted: “Now That We Found Love” (UK #2, US #11), “Is It Good to You” which sampled Mama Used to Say by Junior, “Don’t Curse” and “Peaceful Journey”, which sampled ‘This Place Hotel’ by The Jacksons. Guests on the album include Aaron Hall, Big Daddy Kane, Grand Puba, Kool G. Rap, Q-Tip, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Daddy Freddy and K-Ci & JoJo. One of the songs, “Is It Good to You,” was remade by Teddy Riley and featured singer Tammy Lucas for the soundtrack to the movie Juice.”
