Insomnia is a hip-hop compilation album released in 1996. It was compiled by famous hip hop producer Erick Sermon. He produced all except two tracks on the album and recorded it in order to promote artists affiliated with him. Tommy Gunn (birthname Thomas Blincoe), a performer on this album, was murdered shortly before the album's release,[1] and Erick dedicated this album to his memory in the liner notes.
