Rated G is the third album by the 5th Ward Boyz, released on November 28, 1995 through Rap-a-Lot Records.

Producer Mike Dean, who had produced the group's previous two albums, returned to produce the album with the three members of the 5th Ward Boyz co-producing the album. N.O. Joe, who also produced the group's first two albums did not contribute to this album.

Rated G peaked at 189 on the Billboard 200 and 35 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, their lowest peak position on either chart. Despite the album's lack of commercial success, the album was met with positive reviews. Allmusic gave the album 4.5 stars out of a possible 5, saying "Rated G remains enjoyable. It is the work of talented, but not inspired, imitators and will do if The Chronic and Doggystyle are sounding stale".[1]
