“Are U Xperienced?” is the one and only studio album by the talented rap duo Yomo & Maulkie, hailing from Los Angeles, California. Released on September 17, 1991, by Ruthless Records and Atlantic, the album explores a variety of themes, tackling social issues and showcasing the group’s conscious hip-hop style.
The 14-track album kicks off with the intro “Doors,” written by Yella, setting the stage for the thought-provoking songs to follow. “Glory” delves into the pursuit of success and recognition, while “Watch Out Black Folks” addresses the challenges faced by African Americans in society.
“Mockingbird” and “For The Love Of Money,” which features backing vocals by Jewell Caples and piano by Nate Morgan, are standout tracks that highlight the duo’s lyrical prowess and unique sound. “The A Train” and “Soul Psychedelic Side” showcase Yomo & Maulkie’s ability to create memorable, catchy hooks.
“When Your Back’s Turned” and “Mama Don’t” offer introspective moments, focusing on trust and family dynamics. “Brain Child” and “Society’s Relentless” dive into the societal pressures and expectations faced by individuals, while “Daddy Rich” speaks to the desire for financial success.
The album concludes with the title track, “Are U Xperienced?” and an instrumental bonus track of “For The Love Of Money.” The instrumental version inspired Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s 1994 song “Foe Tha Love of $” on their “Creepin’ On Ah Come Up” EP.
“Are U Xperienced?” is a product of the creative partnership between Yomo Smith and Mark Green, backed by the skilled production of Yella. The album serves as a testament to the duo’s ability to create meaningful, conscious hip-hop that still resonates today.
