Jewel of the Nile is the third album by rap duo, Nice & Smooth. The album was released on June 28, 1994, on Def Jam Recordings sub-label RAL Records, and was produced by Greg Nice, Smooth B., and Little Louie Vega. The album was only mildly successful, making it as high as #66 on the Billboard 200 and #13 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. Two singles made it to the charts, "Old to New" and "Return of the Hip-Hop Freaks." This would be the duo's last album on RAL, as it would leave the label after the failure of this album.
