Lifers Group were an American hip hop group that consisted of prisoners serving time at East Jersey State Prison in New Jersey. The objective of the group was to warn others about the reality of prison life, and the lives that they had lived prior to prison. The group consisted of nine lead emcees, and several other rappers and musicians. Members of the group served sentences of twenty five years to double life for crimes ranging from robbery to murder.

They released a self-titled EP in 1991 and a studio album, Living Proof, in 1993.
