By the mid-'70s, Kuti's albums had essentially become extended singles in the LP format, with two songs in the 10- to 15-minute range occupying entire sides of the release. The 13-minute "Excuse O" is the title side of this album. It's not much different than his usual excursions into Afro-funk-jazz fusion from the era, though at this point he was moving into rhythms that were more jittery and African-sounding than those he had used on many early-'70s efforts

Expensive Shit is the twelfth full-length album by Afrobeat pioneer Fela Ransome Kuti and his Africa '70 band, released in 1975. The title of the album refers to an incident in which the Nigerian police tried to arrest Kuti by planting a joint on him. Kuti managed to eat the joint, prompting police to bring him into custody and wait for him to produce the excrement. According to legend he managed to use another inmate's feces and was eventually released.
