The Body-Hat Syndrome is the third studio album by American hip hop group Digital Underground, released in 1993 on Tommy Boy Entertainment. On this album, they continue their brand of P-Funk culture, ending more than a year of silence with a new album consisting of funk-infused rap. With the release of the leading "The Return of the Crazy One", and its accompanying X-rated music video (reworked for public consumption) boosting the group back into the spotlight, the rest of the album failed to achieve outstanding crossover commercial acclaim. The album's second single, an anti-racism, cultural awareness song called "Wussup Wit the Luv", featured a solo from the Funkadelic guitarist Michael Hampton, as well as a verse and video appearance by Tupac Shakur. This album would be the last time that Shakur and Digital Underground would ever collaborate, while the lead rappers Saafir and Clee were added to the D.U. line up.

The album also features the song "The Humpty Dance Awards", the group's humorous shout-out to the numerous artists who sampled their hit song "The Humpty Dance" before 1993. Since then, the list of sample uses has grown to over 50 artists.
