Runaway Slave is the debut album from Hip Hop duo Showbiz and A.G., members of legendary New York City crew D.I.T.C.. The album is now out of print.

Album information[edit]

The effort was a highly praised underground release, but didn't sell strong numbers. Three songs from their debut EP are included here, "Party Groove", "Soul Clap", and "Catchin' Wreck".

The album features an early appearance from late legend Big L, on the posse cut "Represent", other guest appearances come from Diamond D, Dres, Lord Finesse and DeShawn. The album includes many interludes between songs that features underground artists such as The Legion, Freddie Foxxx, Fat Joe, Kid Capri and Lord Finesse.

Producer Showbiz makes frequent rapping appearance on the album, unlike later releases, where he left the rhyming to A.G.
