Rated XXX [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Doing a bit of a spin on themed anthologies that hone in on particular corners of an artist's catalog -- like Smokey Robinson's Ballads or Aretha Franklin's The Delta Meets Detroit: Aretha's Blues -- Rated XXX shines a light on Kool G Rap & DJ Polo's raunchier side, evidenced through titles like "Talk Like Sex," "Check the Bitch," and "Fuck U Man," a title that's meant to read like a superhero of sorts and not as a diss directed at another male picture a big "F" emblazoned on Kool G Rap's chest. This disc hardly presents a full picture of the duo's output and does something of a disservice to Kool G Rap's versatility as a lyricist. Besides, Cold Chillin' wasn't able to...

Doing a bit of a spin on themed anthologies that hone in on particular corners of an artist's catalog -- like Smokey Robinson's Ballads or Aretha Franklin's The Delta Meets Detroit: Aretha's Blues -- Rated XXX shines a light on Kool G Rap & DJ Polo's raunchier side, evidenced through titles like "Talk Like Sex," "Check the Bitch," and "Fuck U Man," a title that's meant to read like a superhero of sorts and not as a diss directed at another male picture a big "F" emblazoned on Kool G Rap's chest. This disc hardly presents a full picture of the duo's output and does something of a disservice to Kool G Rap's versatility as a lyricist. Besides, Cold Chillin' wasn't able to find enough sex-crazed songs in their catalog to fill out the entire disc. "Rikers Island," for instance, hardly has anything to do with the theme. "Talk Like Sex," however, is the most exemplary of Rated XXX, containing lines such as this one: "Get a grip on your headboard and hold on to it/Or get sent right through it." That's probably the tamest line, by the way. At the time of its release, Rated XXX featured a couple of previously unavailable songs, but the early-2000s overhaul given to the duo's catalog has eradicated the issue and makes this cash-in compilation all the more irrelevant.
