Wrecks-n-Effect is the debut album released by Wrecks-n-Effect. It was released on September 1, 1989 for Motown Records and featured production from Markell Riley and Redhead Kingpin.

The album achieved modest success on the Billboard charts, making it to #103 on the Billboard 200 and #16 on the Top R&B Albums chart. The two singles released found greater success; "New Jack Swing" reached No. 1 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart, while "Juicy" made it to No. 6 on the same chart.

This was the only album by the group to include member Brandon Mitchell, as he would be shot down less than a year later on August 8, 1990.
