Sex Style is the second solo studio album by American rapper Kool Keith. It was released on February 3, 1997 via Funky Ass Records and was produced by KutMasta Kurt and Keith's Ultramagnetic MCs' bandmate T.R. Love. 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 "Get Off My Elevator", which was featured in 1999 film Office Space soundtrack.

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]
