Like It Should Be is the debut studio album released by American hip hop duo Extra Prolific, released in October 25, 1994 on Jive Records. The album was predominantly produced by group member Snupe, with additional production work by fellow Hieroglyphics members Domino, A-Plus and CasualLike It Should Be follows in the vein of previous Hieroglyphics releases with the heavy utilisation of jazz samples and alternative lyrics.

Released after a slew of commercially and critically succcessful Hieroglyphics albums (No Need for Alarm by Del the Funky Homosapien93 'til Infinity by Souls of Mischief and Fear Itself by Casual), Like It Should Be failed to achieve as much success as its predecessors. It charted modestly, reaching #46 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It also spawned the popular single "Brown Sugar", which reached #41 on the Rap Singles chart.
