2000 is the second album by hip hop artist Grand Puba of the group Brand Nubian, released in June 20, 1995 through Elektra Records. The album wasn't as acclaimed as his solo debut Reel to Reel, and wasn't able to sell a significant number of units, despite a Billboard Hot 100 hit, "I Like It (I Wanna Be Where You Are)". Puba reunited with Brand Nubian following 2000, for the release of the album Foundation. He didn't return with another solo album until 2001's Understand This. The song "I Like It (I Wanna Be Where You Are)" was featured in the soundtrack for the video game Tony Hawk's Underground 2.
