T.I.M.E. is the second studio album from hip hop group Leaders of the New School. The acronym T.I.M.E. stands for The Inner Mind's Eye. This effort didn't fare nearly as well as their debut album A Future Without a Past..., receiving mixed reviews. Members Dinco D, Charlie Brown, Cut Monitor Milo and Busta Rhymes began having creative and personal problems after the album's release, and soon split up.

The single, "What's Next", peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart in 1993.
