Reel to Reel is the debut album by American rapper Grand Puba, released in 1992 on Elektra Records. It was his first solo venture after his work as a member of the groups Masters of Ceremony and Brand Nubian, with both group's debut albums being critically acclaimed but failing commercially. Reel to Reel was largely produced by Grand Puba himself, with additional production by Stimulated Dummies, Kid Capri and others.

The album peaked at #28 on the Billboard 200 and #14 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It features the singles "360° (What Goes Around)", "Check it Out", and "Ya Know How it Goes".
