The Beatnuts is the debut studio album by American hip hop group The Beatnuts, released in 1994 on Relativity Records. It was released one year after the release of their debut EP, Intoxicated Demons. The album was produced predominantly by The Beatnuts, with contributions by V.I.C. and Lucien. It features guest appearances by Grand Puba, Miss Jones and Mista Sinista of The X-Ecutioners. The album is known for its diverse production and hedonistic lyrics.

The album's title is sometimes mistakenly referred to as Street Level as the words appear on the album cover, but the words "Street Level" do not appear anywhere else on the album's liner notes or the spine label.

The Beatnuts peaked at #182 on the Billboard 200, and #28 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart. Two singles were released for the album: "Hit Me with That" and "Props Over Here", with the latter peaking at #39 on the Hot Rap Singles chart. It is the last Beatnuts album before Kool Fashion left the group to pursue a solo career under the alias Al' Tariq.
