The 5% Album is the debut album by Brand Nubian member Lord Jamar. Its title and subject matter are taken from the Nation of Gods and Earths teachings that only five percent of the population is enlightened, good, and willing to help those who are oppressed. It features guest appearances by Wu-Tang Clan members RZA and Raekwon, fellow Brand Nubian members Grand Puba and Sadat X, Wu-Tang affiliate Popa Wu, and the sons of GZA (Young Justice), Ol' Dirty Bastard (Young Dirty Bastard), and Jamar (Young Lord). The album peaked at number 94 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
