This group came out when Kid N' Play were doing the "kick step" and NWA were hollering out "F*&^ the Police"! 2 Live Crew was constantly in the news because of thier racy lyrics but out came Rated X, featuring MC Cap N' Crunch and DJ Cool Breeze, from Northern California that incorporated the party friendly movement of groups like Kid N Play and Heavy D & the Boyz with music reminiscent of the gangster funk sound associated with groups like NWA, EPMD and DJ Quik only without the vulgarity. For a young kid like me at the time of this album's release, Rated X was a refreshing combination of the music that I liked that did not come off as being too offensive or overly political. The album is laden with samples from funk band Zapp and takes some production cues from Public Enemy's Bomb Squad (obvious musical role models for this group). Cap N' Crunch seems to still be doing his thing on a local circuit with more reggae styled flows which can also be found on this album. There is even a mellowed out slow jam that is about domestic violence, a topic rarely touched on by gangster rappers with such poignancy. It's a cool album that I thouroughly enjoyed growing up which has now become somewhat of a rare gem/hard to find buy. I say get it if you can, when you can.
