Goodfellas is the second album from underground hip hop duo Show and A.G., formerly known as Showbiz and A.G.. Released three years after their debut Runaway Slave, the album received positive acclaim. The album contains a notably darker and more hardcore sound than their debut. Guest appearances came from Lord Finesse, D-Flow, Party Arty, Wali World, Method Man and Diamond D. The album features the underground hit "Next Level (Nyte Time Mix)", which was produced by DJ Premier and later featured in the movie 8 Mile.

Producer Show, who made numerous rapping appearances on their debut, makes no rhyming appearances on the release. The album is now hard to find in stores, but the album can be purchased from Amazon with prices starting at around $40 because it is so rare.[3]
