Genocide & Juice is the second studio album by political hip hop group The Coup, released on October 13, 1994 on Wild Pitch Records. It is produced entirely by group leader Boots Riley, and features guest appearances from fellow West Coast hip hop artists Spice 1 and E-40.

This was the last album that featured group member E-Roc, who split from the group in between the releases of Genocide & Juice and Steal This Album. The album's title is a play on the cocktail "gin and juice", made famous by Snoop Dogg's song of the same name. [2]
