The Villain in Black is the second album by rapper MC Ren, released April 9, 1996, on Ruthless Records and distributed by Relativity Records. After the release and success of his critically acclaimed debut studio album Shock of the Hour in late 1993, MC Ren immediately began working on his sophomore album. The deaths of DJ Train and Eazy-E would however prove to be a huge setback and Ren stepped off the scene for a while

MC Ren's solo career has suffered from an over-reliance on gangsta rap clichés, and his second full-length album, Da Villain in Black, is no exception. Working with Above the Law's Cold 187um, Ren has constructed an album that doesn't deviate from clichéd G-funk grooves. Furthermore, Ren hasn't come up with lyrics to match his first two solo records, let alone those of Dre, Ice Cube, or Eazy-E. Relying on profanity instead of insight, the half-hearted raps sadly fit the unimaginative music perfectly.

Compton's MC Ren comes hella hard on his 3rd album, The Villain In Black from early 1996, even though most of the songs were recorded in 1995, givin' the album a 1995 feel to it. The album is short, only 9 songs (2 skits), but it is interesting. Ren still kicks in those trill gangster tales with an underground feel. MC Ren's first album highlighting G-Funk, The Villain In Black is a painfully underrated classic! This is largely due to critics dismissing it as pandering to Gangsta Rap, but I disagree because it is not all about committing Gangsta crimes it is about the importance of being a real rapper with something to say too and criticizing those that aren't. And also about politics and his Islamic faith too. MC Ren is the most underrated member of . A and in my view arguably the best.

The Villain In Black is MC Ren’s 2nd studio album and was released in 1996 on Ruthless Records. Singles: Keep It Real and Mad Scientist. The Villain in Black Q&A. Art Direction By Don Cunningham. Executive Producer Eazy-E. Mastered by Michael Sarsfield.
