Lifestyles of the Roach and Famous is an album by the P-Funk spin off act, INCorporated Thang Band. The album was released in 1988 by Warner Bros. Records. The album was produced by George Clinton and Bootsy Collins, while Andre Williams and Lige Curry serve as "Mack Roach" producers. The album concept is a parody of the television series "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous". The album cover was designed by longtime P-Funk album artist Pedro Bell. Originally, the Incorporated Thang Band went by the name of the Tackheads, a slight reference to Jimmy G and the Tackheads which was a P-Funk spin off act fronted by George Clinton's brother Jimmy.
