Thug Disease is a compilation presented by American rapper Spice 1. It was released December 17, 2002 on Rap Classics, and also separately on Lovin' Paper Music Group. The album features guest performances by Kurupt, Bad Azz, Juvenile, MJG, Roscoe, Brotha Lynch Hung and UGK. [1]

A compilation album comprises tracks, which may be previously released or unreleased, usually from several separate recordings by either one or several performers. If by one artist, then generally the tracks were not originally intended for release together as a single work, but may be collected together as a greatest hits album or box set. If from several performers, there may be a theme, topic, time period, or genre which links the tracks, or they may have been intended for release as a single work—such as a tribute album. When the tracks are by the same recording artist, the album may be referred to as a retrospective album or an anthology.
