The Truth Hurts is the debut solo album by American rapper Edo. G, released in 2001 on Ground Control Records. After releasing two albums in the early 1990s as frontman of the group Ed O.G & Da Bulldogs, Ed split from the group in 1993 and embarked on a musical hiatus, with his only releases in the mid to late-1990s being one EP and a few singles. Thus, The Truth Hurts is his first studio album in eight years. It is also his first album released on an independent label, a method that all of his future albums have since followed. The album features guest appearances by Black Thought, Guru and Casual and Tajai of Hieroglyphics, while production is supplied by Pete Rock, DJ Premier, DJ Spinna and Nottz, amongst others. 

Although it did not achieve much commercial success, the album received positive reviews from critics.
