about

Sex Packets is the debut studio album by American Hip Hop group Digital Underground, released on March 26, 1990.

The album was released following the success of its two lead-off singles: "Doowutchyalike", followed by "The Humpty Dance," which reached #11 on the pop charts, #7 on the R&B charts, and #1 on the Billboard Rap Singles chart. Sex Packets was released to positive reviews and eventually achieved platinum sales. In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums Ever.

It is a concept album about "G.S.R.A." (Genetic Suppression Relief Antidotes), a pharmaceutical substance that is produced in the form of a large glowing pill about the size of a quarter, which comes in a condom-sized package and is allegedly developed by the government to provide its intended users such as astronauts with a satisfying sexual experience in situations where the normal attainment of such experiences would be counter-productive to the mission at hand.
