The Cactus Album (1989)

Derelicts of Dialect is the second and final studio album by American hip hop group 3rd Bass, released in 1991 on Def Jam Recordings. The album is considered to be a critical success, and gained publicity by featuring the surprise mainstream hit "Pop Goes the Weasel", a diss track towards Vanilla Ice

The album is noted for its variety of styles both musically and lyrically and demonstrates influences ranging from De La Soul to A Tribe Called Quest. Several amusing anecdotes and skits on the album are influenced by De La Soul's album 3 Feet High and Rising.

Derelicts of Dialect was certified gold by the RIAA three months after its release.
