1990-Sick is the fourth studio album by American rapper Spice 1, released December 5, 1995, on Jive Records. The album was produced by Ant Banks, Blackjack, Bosko, Chase and Clint "Payback" Sands. It peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at number 30 on the Billboard 200. One single, "1990-Sick (Kill 'em All)", peaked at number 91 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and at number 18 on the Billboard Rap Songs. The album features guest appearances by MC Eiht, E-40, Kokane, Joya, Young Kyoz and G-Nut of 187 Fac.
Along with singles, music videos were released for two songs: "1990-Sick (Get 'em All)" featuring MC Eiht, and "Ain't No Love" featuring Levitti. G-Nut makes a cameo appearance in "1990-Sick (Get 'em All)".
Most artists throw a record release party when they complete an album, not Spice 1. After wrapping his latest album, 1990-Sick, he turned himself in to Oakland police. Spice was forced to lie low last summer (in 1995) while making the album, since cops were armed with a warrant for his arrest on illegal weapons charges. In between hiding and recording, he made a video for his first single, "1990-Sick (Get 'em All)." After serving two weeks in prison, he was released due to overcrowding.
Allmusic – "...Building from a solid West Coast hip-hop base, Spice 1 adds ragamuffin and dancehall flourishes, which makes him distinctive as an MC... Spice 1 is an engaging rapper..."
The Source – "...The way he switches flows from semi-automatic fire to fully automatic is enough to make you overlook the weak points of the CD. Spice may be 1990-SICK, but he's still 187-Pure."
