Rapped in Romance is the only studio album by American Los Angeles-based electro-hop group the World Class Wreckin' Cru. It was released in 1986 on Epic.[1][2] Cli-N-Tel left the group during the fall of 1985 which led to Lonzo recruiting Shakespeare to join the group.[3]

After this album, Dr. Dre and DJ Yella left the group, leading to the formation of gangsta rap group N.W.A. While Lonzo Williams would form a new Wreckin Cru and enjoy some moderate mainstream success with the song "Turn Off The Lights".
