Immobilarity is the second studio album by American rapper and Wu-Tang Clan-member Raekwon, as a follow-up to Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.... It was released in November 1999 on Loud Records, and peaked in the Top 10 of the US album charts. The album was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on December 20, 1999.[11]

Unlike the first album, it has no production input from the RZA and no guest features from Ghostface Killah. However, the album does feature Method Man and Masta Killa. Raekwon has stated that the title is an acronym for I Move More Officially by Implementing Loyalty and Respect in the Youth. The album features affiliates American Cream Team, who would later become Ice Water.
