Blood in My Eye is the fifth studio album by American rapper Ja Rule; it released on November 4, 2003, by Murder Inc. and Def Jam. The album was originally planned to be released as a mixtape. The release of the album took place during the feud with Shady/Aftermath rappers 50 Cent, G-Unit, Eminem, D12, Dr. Dre, Obie Trice, along with artists including DMX and Busta Rhymes and was entirely dedicated to dissing them. The album was named after George Jackson's radical book of the same name.

Hussein Fatal of Outlawz, Cadillac Tah, James Gotti, Sizzla, Black Child, Young Merc, D.O. Cannon, Shadow, and Sekou 720 are listed as guest appearances on this album. Blood in My Eye debuted at number 6 on the Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales of 139,000 copies in the United States.[6]
