Strength in Numbers is an album from rap, metal, and funk pioneers 24-7 Spyz. It is the only album to feature Jeff Brodnax, who replaced original vocalist P. Fluid in 1991. On their third effort, the Spyz concentrate on simpler and more direct songwriting, toning down much of their hardcore punk roots and replacing it with Motown-infused heavy metal.

The Seattle grunge movement overpowered the music industry in 1992, leaving the Spyz without a record contract or media attention in the midst of their creative peak.

After the release of the album, the Spyz would take a break before reforming their classic lineup in 1995.

Like many 24-7 Spyz albums, this recording is out of print.
