Not a surprise at all. After all, the first film was also rated R by the MPAA. I'd actually be concerned if the upcoming sequel was rated PG13 or G, or one of those kid-friendly ratings.

“You’re talking to the right person, because when I was coming up, it was all about Prince, Michael Jackson, Jesse Jackson. So it was really difficult for me coming up. Matter of fact, my first production company when I started was called ‘Dark Skin Productions,' because it was difficult breaking in. And then, Wesley Snipes broke through, and he opened it up for us dark-skinned brothers. Some of my boys, Shemar Moore, they’re light-skinned, they get theirs too. There’s enough for everybody.”
