Nervous Breakdown is the second album by Fu-Schnickens, an American hip hop trio from New York City. This album showcases their already prominent "cartoon" style of rapping. The album also shows some lyrical improvement, especially from group member Chip Fu. Shaquille O'Neal, an American basketball player in the NBA, was an extreme fan of the group and makes a guest appearance on the song "What's Up Doc? (Can We Rock)".
