Bossalinie is the second studio album by American rapper C-Murder, released by No Limit Records. It entered the Billboard 200 at number two of the week ending March 14, 1999 after selling over 175,611 in its first week of sales.[2] It stayed on the chart for 11 weeks and was certified Gold. The album features production by Beats By the Pound and guest appearances by Daz Dillinger, Snoop Dogg , Kurupt and other No Limit representatives. The lead hit single " Like A Jungle" was a huge success peaking at #10 on the US Top/Hip Hop Singles & Tracks. There was also a single called "Gangsta Walk" feat Snoop Dogg which was also a hit peaking at #15 on the Top/Hip Hop Singles & Tracks.


The album includes the track "On my Enemies" that samples the 2Pac diss song towards The Notorious B.I.G. and The Bad Boy Family that had not yet been released. It was renamed and camouflaged to a tribute record due to a lack of rights to the sample for the song owned by Death Row Records and/or Amaru Records, as the album liner notes give no credit to 2Pac. It started a feud with Death Row affiliate Yukmouth who released a diss track towards the executive producer of album, Master P. Yukmouth's remake of "Still Ballin" (original created earlier, remix can also be found on Better Dayz) on his 1999 album Thugged Out - The Albulation contains the lyrics : "Cats fakin ya mak...waitin to jack..soon as the day it will pass[...]aim an infrared at the head of a rapper trying to make a living off a dead man[...]".[3]

C-Murder was also charged by Bridgeport Records and/or Southfield Records with improper use of the musical composition "Flashlight" as an interplolated/sampled portion in "W Balls" whereas the infringement has not been remedied as described in Infringing Compositions and/or Sound Recordings and/or Records.[4]
