Will Rap for Food is the debut album by southern hip hop group CunninLynguists, at the time only consisting of Deacon the Villain and Kno. It was released October 2001 on Urban Aces. The album is mostly produced by Kno, with contributions from Celph Titled and Deacon the Villain, respectively, on the singles "So Live!" and "616 Rewind", which was released via Buds Distribution.[4] Will Rap for Food was re-issued in 2005 by Freschest Records.[5]

Background[edit]

The album's title derives from a line from a 2002 Kashal Tee song, "I'm All This", in which he says: "So fuck the commercial tracks you be doin'/A brother got to eat/Yeah? Why don't you rap for food then?" It is played in the intro of "Lynguistics" and Kashal Tee is also featured on the song "616 Rewind".[6]
