Temporary Forever is a studio album by American indie hip hop artist Busdriver. It was released on Temporary Whatever in 2002. It features guest appearances from Radioinactive, Rhetoric, Of Mexican Descent, and Aceyalone. Most of the tracks were recorded and mixed by Daddy Kev, who is a co-executive producer of the album. All scratching on the album was done by D-Styles.


In 2008, Vibe chose the album as one of the 24 Lost Rap Classics, noting that "his adenoidal flow, a breathless bundle of consonants and exclamation points, will challenge anyone looking to tune the MC out."[5]
