It Takes a Thief is the debut studio album by American rapper Coolio. It was released on July 19, 1994 on Warner Bros.

"Fantastic Voyage", a hit from the early 1980s, returned to the charts after Coolio released a song of the same name from this album.

Coolio's debut, It Takes a Thief, brought him immediate success, establishing his reputation as a hard-knock, gun-slinging gangster with a biting sense of humor. Maybe it was because of his appearance - heavy eyelids and cket hairstyle - or maybe it was because of his laid-back vocal delivery, but he never seemed quite as menacing as other West Coast rappers spitting verses about the same thuggery. In actuality, the content of the album is pretty similar to Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, if you can believe that, with Coolio wondering why society is so messed up and trying to find a way to make ends meet. Like Nas (who also came out with his debut in 1994), his lyrics are justifications and apologies for living the thug life in an era when most popular rappers glorified the hardcore lifestyle.
