Donuts is the second studio album by the American hip hop producer J Dilla, released in 2006, by Stones Throw Records. It was released on the day of his 32nd birthday, three days before his death. The album was recorded in 2005, largely during J Dilla's extended stay at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center due to complications from thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) and lupus.

Twenty-nine of the album's thirty-one tracks were recorded in J Dilla's hospital room, using a 45-rpm record player and a Boss SP-303 sampler.
Donuts received widespread critical acclaim for its dense, eclectic sampling and its perceived confrontation of mortality.
Rolling Stone magazine ranked the album at 386 in their 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. It is regarded, by fans and critics alike, as J Dilla's magnum opus, a classic of instrumental hiphop, and one of the most influential hiphop albums of all time, with artists of many genres citing it as an inspiration.
