Warriorz is the fourth full-length studio album released by M.O.P., a hip hop duo composed of emcees Billy Danze and Lil' Fame. The album was released on October 10, 2000. Despite the growing popularity of M.O.P., this album marked their last major-label-affiliated release until Foundation in 2009, as Loud Records folded in 2002. Warriorz is M.O.P.'s most successful album by far. It debuted 65 places higher on the Billboard 200 charts than its previously highest-selling album, First Family 4 Life.
This album spawned the radio hit "Ante Up", which subsequently spawned a remix that also featured Busta Rhymes, Remy Ma, and M.O.P. associate Teflon. The popularity of the song was so widespread, it was featured in a few films within years of its release. "Ante Up" appeared in the motion pictures The Last Castle, Brown Sugar, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, the dance film You Got Served, and 30 Minutes or Less. The song was also featured in an episode of the short lived television series Robbery Homicide Division, as well as an episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine ("The Chopper") and an episode of The Mindy Project ("In the Club").
