Bottle of Humans is the first studio album by American hip hop musician Sole, released on Anticon in 2000.[3] It reached number 14 on the CMJ New Music Monthly's Top 25 Hip-Hop chart.[4]

Release[edit]

A dispute with Anticon's distributor caused the album to go out of print until it was remastered and reissued in 2003 with minor changes to the artwork and track listing.

"Nothing Fell Apart", "Understanding" and "MC Howard Hughes" were removed from the 2003 reissue. Also, on the cover art of the original issue, the words "sole" and "bottle of humans" appear to be pasted on. In the 2003 issue, the text is redone as it was meant to look, with no white border around the text.
