Visions of Gandhi is the 3rd album from underground hip hop group Jedi Mind Tricks, and the first album on the Babygrande record label. Jus Allah split from the group after the release of their album Violent by Design (2000), returning the group back to its original lineup of Vinnie Paz, Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind and DJ Drew Dollars.

Producer Stoupe expands his dark sounds, including beats with grand orchestral samples and Latin-tinged production. Vinnie Paz lessens his lyrical topics to focus on his thug persona.

Album guests include Canibus, Kool G Rap, Percee P, Ras Kass, and Tragedy Khadafi, as well as underground peers Crypt the Warchild, Planetary of OuterSpace, and Non Phixion members Ill Bill, Sabac Red, and Goretex. – Wiki

“Stoupe has always had an uncanny knack for layering beats, samples, and rhymes into seething cauldrons of attitude. His songs tap directly into your cerebral cortex and unleash head-nodding, foot-tapping hip-hop exuberance. Vivid in their darkness and beautiful as the night sky, Vinnie Paz' lyrics are the stars which punctuate the blackness with bright light. His deliver is a loud roar, a cat that even DMX couldn't bark at. His imagery is harsh and relentless, using intelligence to both illuminate the dark and intimidate cowardly MC's who fear his shine.

The lead single "Animal Rap" may be the penultimate expression of all these qualities in one bold statement. Even without the legendary Kool G. Rap lending guest vocals, this song would still blaze mixtapes coast to coast. Stoupe's rapid-fire beat and equally staccato selection of symphonic strings is the perfect backdrop for Paz to spit out his venom.” – Rap Reviews

About Jedi Mind Tricks:

Jedi Mind Tricks (JMT) is an underground hip hop duo from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, founded by two high school friends, rapper Vinnie Paz (Vincenzo Luvineri) and producer Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind (Kevin Baldwin). In 1999 second rapper Jus Allah joined the group to record their second studio album, Violent by Design. Allah left the group shortly after, but returned in 2008 for the sixth studio album, A History of Violence. In 2011 Stoupe left the group because "his heart wasn't in making JMT records anymore". In 2013, Allah left again, and Stoupe returned in 2015.

DJ Kwestion mainly scratches choruses on the turntable. Kwestion is also a part of the group Skratch Makaniks. Kwestion, who is the tour DJ, was a replacement for JMT's previous DJ, Drew Dollars, who is no longer affiliated with the group.
