You Can't See Me is the debut studio album by WWE's wrestler John Cena and his cousin, Tha Trademarc, billed together as John Cena & Tha Trademarc. It was released on May 10, 2005, by WWE Music Group and Columbia Records. The album features sole guest appearances from Esoteric and Bumpy Knuckles, who are featured on several songs throughout the album. The album production was handled by James McEwan and Todd Spadafore, with the duo serving as the executive producers on the album. The album's cover art is based on Cena's customized WWE Championship belt, while the title comes from his popular catchphrase coined on WWE television.

You Can't See Me debuted at number 15 on the Billboard 200 charts, with over 40,000 copies sold in the first week of its release.[6][7] In the United Kingdom, the album peaked at number 103 on the UK Albums Chart,[8] and has since become a certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), selling 1,346,000 units, as of October 8, 2010.
