Hypocrisy Is the Greatest Luxury is the debut album by alternative hip hop crew The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy, released in 1992 (see 1992 in music). Hypocrisy Is the Greatest Luxury found some critical acclaim, although the album leaned away from the then-rising G Funk that came to be the dominant sub-genre within west coast hip hop.

"Television, the Drug of the Nation" was released as a single. It had previously been recorded by Michael Franti's first band, The Beatnigs.
