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