El-P (real name Jaime Meline, also known as El-Producto) is a New York-based hip hop artist and co-founder, owner, and CEO of Definitive Jux Records. His discography consists of three solo studio albums, five instrumental albums, two mix tapes, and eleven singles. He has also appeared on numerous other artist's recordings as either a guest vocalist or producer. Releases from Company Flow and The Weatherman, both of which El-P has been a member, are not included in this discography: only solo material.

El-P's early career and rise to prominence was as part of Company Flow, formed in 1992, consisting of El-P, Mr. Len, Bigg Jus.[1] Following the break-up of the group, El-P started his own record label, Definitive Jux.[2] El-P produced early records from the label, including Cannibal Ox's critically acclaimed The Cold Vein and his own debut solo album, Fantastic Damage. El-P released his second solo album, I'll Sleep When You're Dead, in 2007.

El-P has contributed as producer and guest vocalist to albums by artists such as DJ Krush, Aesop Rock, Murs, Cage, Mr. Lif, Prefuse 73, Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Mike Ladd, and Atmosphere, among many others. He collaborated with Alec Empire on the first Handsome Boy Modeling School album and with Cage and Chino Moreno on the second. El-P also provided the soundtrack for the graffiti film Bomb the System.
