Young, Black, Rich and Famous is the third album by the rap artist, producer and songwriter M-Doc.

The set felt somewhere between rap and R&B, and its ambitions were probably best realized on the lead single, which was a cover of the Deniece Williams' number one hit from 1977 "Free"[2] M-Doc's version of the song released as the lead single scored minor chart success on the U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles, where it peaked at number sixty-one in 1998.[3]

To the album contributed several other performers. Among them, the singer CeCe Peniston (on the track "Keep It Real"), with whom M-Doc collaborated on the singles produced for her ("Searchin'", "I'm Not Over You" and "He Loves Me 2").
