Dead Serious is the debut album by American hip hop duo Das EFX, released in 1992 on East West Records. Recording sessions for the album took place at Firehouse Studios in Brooklyn, New York and North Shore Soundworks in Long Island, New York. It was promoted with the release of three singles: "They Want EFX", "Mic Checka" and "Straight Out the Sewer".

The album was a certified hit, peaking at #16 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, topping the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for five weeks and reaching platinum sales by 1993.
