Profile (courtesy of Wikipedia):

“Full Scale is a 1998 release from hip hop duo Show and A.G. The EP features appearances from O.C., KRS-One, Big Pun and the Ghetto Dwellas. The LP version also includes verses from most members of their crew D.I.T.C. including Diamond D, Big L and Lord Finesse. Two versions were released at different times; the original Full Scale EP was released on 12” vinyl in early 1998 and featured 5 songs together with the instrumentals. Around 2002 a CD version, titled Full Scale LP and using the same artwork, was released. This version included the 5 songs found on the EP together with 10 additional tracks which had originally been released on various 12” singles and projects in the late 1990s. Four of the songs on the CD edition had also appeared on the self-titled D.I.T.C. album released on Tommy Boy Records in 2000. The songs were “Dignified Soldiers”, “Drop It Heavy”, “Spit (Remix)” and “Time To Get This Money”. Two of these appeared as remixes while the remaining two appeared virtually unchanged. Production on all songs on the Full Scale EP is handled by Showbiz and A.G. themeselves. On the CD version this remains except on “Time To Get This Money” which was produced by long-time collaborator Ahmed, and “Hold Mines” plus “Hidden Crates” which were produced by DJ Greyboy.”
