Music to Driveby is the third album by American hip hop group Compton's Most Wanted, released in 1992 on Orpheus Records. The album features gangsta rap themes centered around nihilism, hood life and participation in gangs. It is notable for the song "Hood Took Me Under", which was later featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and is considered a classic gangsta rap song. The album contains the Tim Dog diss "Who's Xxxxing Who?", as well as numerous shots at DJ Quik throughout.

Music to Driveby peaked at #66 on the Billboard 200, and #20 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. It has received positive reviews, and is often considered a classic gangsta rap album and Compton's Most Wanted's best work. After its release, frontman MC Eiht embarked on a solo career and released several solo albums (although his first two are credited to "MC Eiht featuring Compton's Most Wanted").
