lady sovereign vertically challenged uncensored?

I picked up vertically challenged at BB when it came out and to my horror found out it is heavily censored and there is no sticker saying it was. Is there a uncensored release of this LP anywhere? I did a google search and came out with nada

thanks

I have a copy of that album that I got off eMusic. Although I've only listened to it 3-4 times, I haven't noticed anything bleeped out.

lady, vertical, uncensored, certainly three words that when combined could be construed as being lurid in nature.

Such as?

I've heard "Random" played in clubs in the US and France and it is always the same. I've never heard the "un-altered" version you claim exists.



Edit:

I just did a Google search and found this review on Amazon:

Ugh! I'm so disappointed! I love Lady Sovereign. I love all the songs on this EP. But I had no idea that they would be CENSORED on this disc! All curse words and objectionable phrases have been eliminated with editing, or in some cases, alternate lyrics. LAME! This EP should carry a label identifying it as a CLEAN version so that consumers know what they're getting. Strangely, there doesn't seem to be an Explict Lyrics version available. This seems to be it. If I am wrong, I apologize, and someone please correct me, but I haven't been able to find any listings indicating both edited and explicit editions exist, which is extremely frustrating. I have heard uncensored versions of these songs, so I know they are out there. Unfortunately, they are not presented on this disc. Awful.

Five stars for Lady Sov and these songs when they're uncesnored. One star for the versions presented here.
So, I guess you're right. I've never heard the uncensored versions. If you find them, let me know.

According to many lyrics sites this is what the 1st part of random should be:

"Everybody in the club getting' tipsy,
Oh fuck dat, just whine like a gypsy,
Can't see straight, like I got one eye (pop),
Your bottle opener or mine,
Let's... get started,
Move ya arms round like fucked up karate,
Ooh shit... my word plays nasty,
Ooh shit... don't put it past me,
Move titch get out da... way,
Ah, nuff of dat im here to stayyyy...,
Flow lazy.. pick da pace up when I flow less hazy,
J-Lo's got a batty,
Well you can't see mine cus I wear my trousers baggy,
Anyways.. yeah, lets... commence...."

On the CD all the curse words are censored. Anybody post here from the UK? Is the CD the same there?
