The Album is the first and only studio album by American hip hop supergroup The Firm. It was released on October 21, 1997 by Aftermath Entertainment, Interscope Records, Def Jam Recordings and Columbia Records. The project was created by rapper Nas, his manager Steve Stoute and producers Dr. Dre and Trackmasters, who came up with the idea of forming a hip hop supergroup.

The Firm is the first studio album by the British rock band The Firm, released by Atlantic Records on 11 February 1985. Tracks ranged from the epic "Midnight Moonlight" based on a previously unreleased song by Led Zeppelin called "Swan Song", first tinkered with during the Physical Graffiti sessions, to the commercially successful "Radioactive". Closer" employs a horn section to subtle effect.

The Album is the first and only studio album by American hip hop supergroup The Firm. The original line-up included Nas, AZ, Foxy Brown and Cormega who were all featured on the song "Affirmative Action" from Nas' album It Was Written (1996). The Album sold 147,000 copies in the debut week and has sold over 925,000 copies in the United States and was certified gold in Canada. Two singles were release from the album, with "Firm Biz" peaking at number twelve on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and number eighteen on the UK Singles Chart. However, the album's second single "Phone Tap" failed to chart.

After coming together on the track Affirmative Action from Nas‘ 1996 album It Was Written, Nas, AZ, Foxy Brown, and Nature (who replaced Cormega) formed The Firm and released their only album through Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment in 1997. Dre and the Trackmasters handled the majority of the album’s production and they looked to continue the commercial success of It Was Written.

With a cast list lengthy enough to compete with that of a small movie, The Album is an auditory trip into the lives of a handful of nefarious individuals living a gangster lifestyle, however unconvincing
