The Cactus Revisited is a remix extended play by American Queens-based hip hop trio 3rd Bass. It was released on September 7, 1990 via Def Jam Recordings. Out of a total seven tracks, the album consists of six remixed songs from The Cactus Album and one unreleased song. The remixing was provided by 3rd Bass themselves, Dave Dorrell, Marley Marl, Prince Paul, CJ Mackintosh, and Sam Sever of Downtown Science. It received both lackluster commercial and critical reception and is considered to be a patchy diversion, according to Dean Carlson of AllMusic.
