A Tear for the Ghetto is the second album by American hip hop duo Group Home, released in 1999 on Replay Records. The album features production work by DJ Premier and The Alchemist being the most notable. Two music videos were made for the album for tracks "The Legacy" and "Stupid Muthaf*ckas", which were also released as singles. Some songs are recycled from previous singles, including "Dial a Thug" and "12 O'Clock". Despite the efforts of advertising and having big names on their project, the album received little commercial and critical success.
