Funkdoobiest is an American rap group from Los Angeles, California. The original members were Son Doobie (Jason Vasquez), DJ Ralph M (Ralph Medrano) and Tomahawk Funk (Tyrone Pacheco). The latter left after their second album.

The group's first two albums were mainly produced by Cypress Hill's DJ Muggs. Their third album, The Troubleshooters, included production by Ralph M and DJ Rectangle. Whereas the other albums were clearly hardcore rap in the vein of Cypress Hill and other Soul Assassins members, The Troubleshooters was more versatile.[citation needed] DJ Muggs was the group's mentor and inspiration. The group is known for the sexually explicit song "Superhoes" about the perverted secret identities of superheroes. Son Doobie also proclaimed himself the porno king. They also had their own X-rated club in Los Angeles.

Funkdoobiest have never cared for censorship, and have released several hit singles, such as "XXX Funk", about controversial topics such as pornography.

Their fourth album The Golden B-Boys was released in 2011. It was produced and arranged by DJ Ralph M for B-Boy Beats LLC. The cover art was by Galo "MAKE" Canote. It will be-released in the second quarter of 2013.
