The South Park Psycho is the first album by the rapper Ganksta N-I-P. It was released on February 26, 1992, through Rap-a-Lot Records. The album has production from Ganksta N-I-P, The Terrorists, John Bido and Doug King. The album is one of the earliest examples of the horrorcore genre, and considered by many[who?] as a Southern hip hop classic.

Guest artists include future routine collaborators, Dope-E, K-Rino, and Seagram. Willie D and Scarface, then of the Geto Boys, also appear on the track "Actions Speak Louder Than Words". This song also appears on the Geto Boys' first greatest hits collection, the 1992 release Uncut Dope: Geto Boys' Best.
