Out of Business is the sixth album from Hip Hop duo EPMD, which changed its initialism for the release from Erick & Parrish Making Dollars to Erick & Parrish Millennium Ducats.

A limited-edition version of the album was also released with a bonus greatest hits disc that features tracks spanning from 1987 to 1997. The versions of the tracks from its two first albums are rerecorded versions because EMI would not license these tracks to Def Jam for inclusion.
