"Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth is the 1973 Stax debut and only album released by The 24-Carat Black until a lost album, Gone: The Promises of Yesterday, was finally released 35 years later. Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth is an underground soul classic, a cohesive eighgt song concept album about the hardship of black urban life, produced and arranged by classically trained Detroit song writer Dale Warren, who was an orchestrator and arranger on the Isaac Hayes' albums Hot Buttered Soul, The Isaac Hayes Movement, and ...To Be Continued, among others. This album has been a hit among many samplers for decades including being used on these songs: Jay-Z - 'Can I Live Pt 2', Dr. Dre - 'Nas Is Coming', Eric B - 'In The Ghetto', Digable Planets - 'Cool Like Dat' and Naughty by Nature - 'Poverty's Paradise.' On 180 gram vinyl from 4 Men With Beards."
