Time Will Reveal is the fourth studio album by the American West Coast hip hop group Above the Law. Released in 1996 by Tommy Boy Records, it was the group's first record after leaving Ruthless Records following the death of member Eazy-E. The group's former labelmates Kokane and MC Ren made guest appearances on the record, along with Enuff, Daddy Cool and Kid Frost. Time Will Reveal peaked at number 16 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and number 80 on the Billboard 200.

The album was primarily produced by Cold 187um with KM.G and Total K-oss, except for Cold 187 um's remix of "City of Angels" (the original version appeared on the film soundtrack to The Crow: City of Angels), which was produced by Tony G and Julio G.[3] The album's lead single "100 Spokes" peaked at number 24 on the Hot Rap Singles and number 81 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks.
