Back in Black, released in 1986, was the third album by American hip hop group Whodini. The album spawned three singles: "Funky Beat", "Growing Up", and "One Love", which was sampled in E-40's song "1-Luv" featuring Levitti, taken from his 1995 album In a Major Way. The album was certified platinum by RIAA.

The music video for the third single "Growing Up" was notable for the appearances of actors Giancarlo Esposito, Laurence Fishburne and Carl Anthony Payne II.
