Food for Thought is the debut album of American hip hop artist Young Rome, a former member of the R&B group Immature/IMx. The album was released in the U.S. on June 22, 2004 and is available as a clean version and a parental advisory version.


Young Rome's opinion of this album is that, "It's far from what Immature did. It's more mature—more about my personal life and what I've been through. I sing about the ups and downs of being in the group, of what's happening with my family and going through stuff. This album shows all of me—the adversity and everything else."[3]

In the United States, Food for Thought debuted at number 98 on the Billboard 200[4] and peaked at number 32 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.[5]

The album features guest appearances by Omarion, YoungBloodZ, fellow former Immature/IMx member, Marques Houston, et al.
