Roxbury 02119 is the second and final album by American hip hop group Ed O.G & Da Bulldogs, released in July 13, 1993 under Chemistry Records. The album was performed solely by group leader Ed O.G and was predominantly produced by Joe Mansfield and labelmate Diamond D. It deals with similar topics as its predecessor, Life of a Kid in the Ghetto, such as the negative effects of drugs and remembrance of lost ones. Roxbury 02119 is titled after the name and zipcode of Ed O.G's birthplace Roxbury, a neighborhood in Boston, Massachusetts.

The album peaked at #36 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Its single, "Love Comes and Goes", performed well on the charts. The album received mediocre reviews from critics, who generally decided that the album did not live up to its predecessor. The group broke up a short time after the release of this album, and would be Ed O.G's last studio album for nearly seven years.
