93 'til Infinity is the debut album by American hip hop group Souls of Mischief, released in September 28, 1993 on Jive Records. The sound of the album is characteristic of the distinct style explored by the group's collective Hieroglyphics, including rhyme schemes based on internal rhyme and beats centered around a live bass and obscure jazz and funk samples. It is one of a number of albums released during the "Hiero Golden Age", a period in the early-to-mid nineties during which the collective released several critically acclaimed albums, such as Del tha Funkee Homosapien's No Need for Alarm and Casual's Fear Itself, and rose to national prominence.

The album reached #85 on the Billboard 200, and #17 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. 93 'til Infinity was propelled into success by its title track and lead single, which peaked at #72 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album has been critically acclaimed by many critics for its genre defying subject matter, funky production, and charismatic rapping.
