Season of da Siccness: The Resurrection is the debut studio album by American West Coast hip hop artist Brotha Lynch Hung. It was released February 28, 1995 through Black Market Records.

Background[edit]

Mann recorded and mixed the album in 1994 at Enharmonic Studio, Sacramento, California. The album is dedicated to Q-Ball (as stated in the album booklet), Mann's cousin who was murdered around the time of the albums creation. The song 'Liquor Sicc' touches on subjects of dealing with his death and retaliation. Personnel on the album include Brotha Lynch Hung, Mr. Doctor, Ron Foster, X-Raided, Zigg Zagg, Zoe, Sicx, Hyst, and Babe Reg.[1] Mann has stated that he produced, mixed and mastered the entire album himself, which to this day is the only album in which he has done this.[citation needed] The album was reprinted and re-released in 2005 as the original Black Market pressing is out of print. This re-release is distributed by IDN Distribution.
