Some people have way too much time on their hands, and sometimes that works to our benefit. This is one of those times. A man named Andrew Powell-Morse undertook and completed the almost unfathomable task of combing through, analyzing, and ranking all the swear words in popular rap albums from 1985 to 2013.

We like to keep things suitable for work around here, so we won't go into specifics in terms of which words Powell-Morse found to be most commonly used. We'll let you use your imagination for that. What we can tell you is that the title of most profane album in history goes to the aptly titled Raw, Uncut, & X-Rated, the 1986 release from relatively obscure rapper Too $hort.
Of the more well-known MCs, the award for the most expletive prone goes to none other than Tupac, who put out two of the most profane popular rap albums in history. Others joining him in the potty-mouth club include Eminem, N.W.A., The Notorious B.I.G., and Dr. Dre. In total, Powell-Morse surveyed 145 rap albums and caught 31,564 swear words for an average of 217.7 per album. His stats serve as a gentle reminder that those black-and-white parental advisory stickers aren't just for decoration.
