"Stakes is High" is the 4th studio album by De La Soul, released on July 2, 1996.

"Stakes is High" was critically acclaimed for its music, lyricism and overall message about the artistic decline of rap music in the mid-90s.

The title track and first single were produced by J Dilla, and the album's second single "Itzsoweezee (HOT)," which featured only Dave singing, was accompanied by a creative music video. The album spawned a third single "4 More" which featured Zhane.

The album served as a launching pad for future star rapper and actor Mos Def, who is featured on the track "Big Brother Beat," and Common, who is featured on "The Bizness."
