Funke, Funke Wisdom is the fourth album by emcee Kool Moe Dee. The single "Rise N Shine" was number 1 on Billboards Hot Rap Singles chart.

The single "Death Blow" was an overt dis track directed at LL Cool J, with whom Kool Moe Dee had had a rivalry throughout the 1980s. It's significant, because the song has some profanity-laced insults about Cool J's mother, even though it's censored. This is a break from his clean image. The video featured a satire of Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out" video.[1] His next album, Interlude, did not contain any disses or responses to LL Cool J.

The track "Bad, Bad, Bad" was featured in the 1992 film Stay Tuned as well as its soundtrack.
