Are U Xperienced? is the debut and only studio album by American hip hop duo Yomo & Maulkie. It was named after the Jimi Hendrix 1967 album Are You Experienced. It was released on September 17, 1991 via Eazy-E's Ruthless Records, and was produced by DJ Yella. Though the album was met with some positive reviews, it was a commercial failure and did not appear on any album charts. Three singles were released: "Mama Don't", "Mockingbird", "Glory"/"Are U Xperienced?", but the only single "Glory" made it to the Billboard charts, peaking at number 7 on the Hot Rap Songs.[2] Labelmates Jimmy Z and Jewell Caples were featured on the album.

Parts of the song "For the Love of Money" (including Jewell's backing vocals) were later recycled on the track "Foe tha Love of $" by Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, from their 1994 extended play album Creepin on ah Come Up.[3] The instrumental version of "For the Love of Money" also appeared on Creepin on ah Come Up under the title "Moe Cheese".
