Sex Style is the second studio album by Ultramagnetic MCs member Kool Keith. The album was released on February 3, 1997. It is a dirty rap concept album utilizing a lyrical style Keith referred to as "pornocore". Although the album did not chart, it was reissued in 2006 with a bonus track.

Lyrics and music[edit]

Sex Style has been described as polarizing[1] due to its lyrical style, which Kool Keith described as pornocore.[1] The music was primarily written by producer Kutmasta Kurt. The production is noted for its deep, funky beats.[1] Sex Style is described as a loose concept album.[1]

The lyrics make frequent reference to sexual intercourse, with Kool Keith variously portraying himself as characters ranging from pimps to perverts.[1] Keith also uses sexual metaphors to diss other rappers, many of which involve urolagnia.[1]
