This is a comprehensive list of the discography of Kardinal Offishall, a Canadian rapper and record producer. He has released four studio albums, one extended play (EP), thirty singles, and five mixtapes.

In 1997, Offishall released his debut album, Eye & I, on independent label Capitol Hill Music, to critical acclaim.[1] In 2000, he released the EP, Husslin', also independently on Figure IV Entertainment, which helped establish him as one of Canada's best hip-hop producers.[2][3] The same year, Kardinal signed with major label MCA Records, and released his second album Quest for Fire: Firestarter, Vol. 1 in 2001. The lead single, "BaKardi Slang", became his first single to appear on a U.S. Billboard chart.[4] After releasing the single "Belly Dancer" in 2003, he left MCA Records after it was absorbed by Geffen Records.[5]

In 2005, Offishall released his third album, Fire and Glory, on the Canadian division of Virgin Records.[3] The single "Everyday (Rudebwoy)" became a top twenty hit in Canada. In 2008, his fourth album Not 4 Sale was released on Kon Live Distribution, a subsidiary of Geffen Records. The album was a critical success, spawning the hit single "Dangerous".[3] The single was his first to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number five, and was certified triple platinum in Canada.[4] In 2012, Offishall released Allow Me to Re-Introduce Myself, a collaborative mixtape with producer Nottz. He will release his fifth studio album, Mr. International, on independent label Black Stone Colleagues Inc. in 2014.[6]
