Home Invasion is the fifth studio album by American rapper Ice-T, released in 1993 on Rhyme $yndicate Records. The album was originally set to be released in 1992 on Warner Bros. Records, but Ice-T left the label following the controversy from his song "Cop Killer" with the metal band Body Count.

The title track explored the concept of a white supremacist home being invaded by political emcees who were seeking to rescue the children of racist indoctrination. The song "Gotta Lotta Love" pays tribute to the Los Angeles gang truce, and discusses the benefit of blacks and Latinos living in harmony. "That's How I'm Living" is an autobiographical recount of Ice-T's early life. "Race War" is a reflection on the 1992 Los Angeles riots and a warning against such events repeating themselves, and "Message to the Soldier" offers advice to those involved in political hip hop. After abstaining from sex rhymes on his previous album O.G. Original Gangster, Ice-T made a point of including two such tracks on this album with "Hit the Fan" and "99 Problems".

The album peaked at #14 on the Billboard 200, and #9 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Home Invasion was the last Ice-T album to feature significant political content, with his later releases having a predominant gangsta rap theme. The album is also seen as the release with which Ice-T's career began to take a downturn, with reviews being generally less impressed than they had been with his earlier work.
