Brothas Doobie is the second studio album by Los Angeles-based Latin hip hop group Funkdoobiest. It was released on July 4, 1995 via Epic Records. This was the final album featuring back-up MC and hypeman Tomahawk Funk, who left the group after this release. The album contains the famous and controversial track "Superhoes", which also appeared in the soundtrack to the film Friday, starring N.W.A's Ice Cube. The album has been falsely shown with a blue cover, several times. It has a green color instead.

An edited version of the album, which removed most of its explicit language and sexual content, was also released. It completely censored the track "Superhoes", due to references to masturbation and rape, and the track "Pussy Ain't Shit" due to its main graphic theme: the female reproductive organs.
