Outkast new album, how bad is the "sexual content"?

One of my reletives, has a son who likes "hey ya" but she doesn't want him hearing really sexually explicit lyrics. He's about 10. He wanted "the emeinem show" but I played my reletive the song "drips" and she couldn't take it, so he didn't get that one.
So how "bad" is the sexual content in the "speakerboxxx/the love below"

Not bad at all. Listening to Andre's sexually driven songs is no worse than listening to an older Prince song. There are a few skits however that feature two people's reaction to a one night stand, but still not nearly as explicit as anything on Eminem's last album. If i were you i'd but them the album, and burni it sans the two skits.
Big Boi's album is a bit rougher around the edges though, but still tame compared to your standard rap album.

It's fine. Buy the record.

Also, WAL-MART has it with whatever minimal cussing there is bleeped out. That's the one he should be getting.

The only song I can really think of that stands out with sexual content is "Spread" by Andre. But there's nothing really that explicit.

yes to all the above, and also it's worth noting that this is their first album to not have a nude woman gracing the cd itself

The skit "The Morning After" is prolly the worst you'll find on the Love Below portion of the 2-CD set. Although sex can often be a part of of Andre's songs, it's all well done and I think the track "Behold a Lady" dismisses any notion that they don't have respect for women.

All of those were basically paintings on the disc, some of which if not all by Andre Benjamin, and I think they were pretty cool.

It's a better form of expression than actual pictures of scantily-clad women inside the booklet.

Just my opinion though. Slightly off topic.
