Neighborhood Watch is the third album from West Coast hip hop group Dilated Peoples and was released in 2004. The album was not as acclaimed as their past releases, The Platform and Expansion Team, and was not able to push a significant amount of units, despite having the group's first Billboard Hot 100 hit in the Kanye West-assisted "This Way". The album also features the singles "Marathon" and "Poisonous", as well as the DJ showcase "DJ Babu in Deep Concentration", an ode to Gang Starr's 1989 track "DJ Premier in Deep Concentration". "Who's Who" was used in the video-game "Need for Speed: Underground".
