Tell 'Em Why U Madd is the debut album by The Madd Rapper. The Madd Rapper is the alias of then Bad Boy Records in-house producer D-Dot. After appearing on several skits on Bad Boy albums (most notably the intro to the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Kick in the Door") with his Madd Rapper alias, D-Dot released this album as The Madd Rapper.

Production and Collaborations[edit]

The album features many big name guests such as Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Raekwon, and 50 Cent. It features the single "How to Rob" by 50 Cent, which was from his unreleased album Power of the Dollar. Although the album was mainly self-produced, it is very notable for being one of the earlier projects that Kanye West worked on.
