This Is an EP Release is the RIAA gold-certified[1] EP by Digital Underground, from which "Tie the Knot" and "Same Song" were featured in the film Nothing But Trouble, starring Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Demi Moore and John Candy. "Tie the Knot" contained jazz-influenced piano tracks and a comedic interpretation of "Bridal Chorus" and "Same Song" contains an organ solo and improvised organ sections throughout the song, making it one of hip hop's first singles to successfully integrate live instrumentation with music samples. Tupac Shakur made his debut on the latter song, and portrayed an African king in the video. Tupac also can be heard on "The Way We Swing" (Remix) as a background vocalist, adding humorous ad-libs between the verses.

Two different versions of the track "Same Song" were recorded; a long version, which runs over six minutes, and an edit, which runs four minutes.[2] Also a music video was made for "Same Song" using footage from the film Nothing But Trouble in which it originally appeared.
