Wild Cowboys is the solo debut by Brand Nubian member Sadat X, released in July 16, 1996 on Loud Records. Though the album did not receive much mainstream attention, it was a popular underground release, partly due to the album's guest producers, which included D.I.T.C. members Buckwild, Diamond D and Showbiz, as well as underground legends Pete Rock, Da Beatminerz and O.Gee / DJ Ogee. Wild Cowboys features the singles "Hang 'Em High", "Stages & Lights" and "The Lump Lump". A sequel to the album was released on March 23, 2010.
