20/20 is the fourth album from West Coast hip hop group Dilated Peoples. Following the mixed reviews from their 2004 album Neighborhood Watch, the group was able to reclaim some of their past acclaim with 20/20, but not on the level of their first two efforts The Platform and Expansion Team. The album's lead single, "Back Again", was not able to make a strong impact, partly due to MTV refusing to play the video, due to a scene in which Rakaa wears a bulletproof vest.[citation needed] Back Again also appears in the EA Sports videogame "Fight Night Round 3".
