Edutainment is the fourth studio album by American hip hop group Boogie Down Productions, released in 1990 on Jive Records and RCA Records. Its title is a portmanteau of the words "education" and "entertainment", and its subject matter deals with Afrocentricity and socio-political knowledge. It has 6 interludes titled "exhibits", most of which feature Kwame Ture, a prominent organiser in the US Civil Rights Movement and the Black Panther Party. The album is performed and produced primarily by Boogie Down Productions frontman KRS-One.

The album peaked at #32 on the US Billboard 200, and #9 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. It was certified Gold in sales by the RIAA.
