Ill Communication is the fourth studio album by the American hip hop group Beastie Boys. It was released on May 31, 1994 by Grand Royal Records. The album is among the band's most varied releases, drawing from alternative hip hop, jazz-funk, hardcore punk and rap rock.

It is their second number one album on the US Billboard chart. The album was supported by the single "Sabotage", which was accompanied by a music video (directed by Spike Jonze) that parodied 1970s cop shows. The album was also their second triple platinum album.

Ill Communication was co-produced by Beastie Boys and Mario C.. Featuring musical contributions from Money Mark, Eric Bobo and Amery "AWOL" Smith, vocal contributions from Q-Tip and Biz Markie.

Mike D and Adam Yauch collaborated with Gibran Evans of T.A.Z. to create the album packaging, and to choose the unique cover photo taken by Bruce Davidson. The hand-drawn typeface was created by designer Jim Evans specifically for Ill Communication, and was used throughout the promotion of the album. The album booklet also features the artwork "Gaia" by Alex Grey.
