Popular Rap Songs Turned Into Childrens Rap On New Album

With rap songs

like Jibbs’ "Chain Hang Low," Nelly’s "Country Grammar" and

even Fergie’s "London Bridge," there has certainly been no shortage

of children’s rhymes in Hip-Hop. But

now the tables are turning. A

number of popular rap songs will be flipped into tailor-made kids’ songs for the

new album Kid’s Rap Radio. The

disc will be produced by Music World Entertainment, the management and recording

label helmed by Mathew Knowles, and features remakes of rap songs such as Lil

Wayne’s "Go DJ," Nelly’s "Grillz," D4L’s "Laffy Taffy,"

and Cam’ron’s "Touch It Or Not."The

first installment features performances by child rapper Lil Max$o and Steve Wash

(The Wayne Brady Show, The Parkers). Knowles

assured that the tracks will be profanity free, and that all of the lyrics have

been reworked to be palatable for a younger listening audience.

"With

the Hip-Hop industry constantly being scrutinized for lyrical content, Kid’s

Rap Radio allows young Hip-Hop fans to be positively influenced by alternate,

kid-friendly lyrics of songs by today’s top rap stars," Knowles said. "The

messages are positive, there’s no profanity, and younger Hip-Hop fans will enjoy

these versions of today’s hottest rap songs. It’s important to all of us at Music

World Entertainment that today’s youth be able to enjoy popular rap songs without

the parental advisory warnings and that we are able to contribute by sending a

positive message." Music

World will also release Kids’ Rap Christmas, which contains children’s

renditions of popular rap songs themed around Christmas. Kid’s

Rap Radio Vol. 1 & 2 and Kids’ Rap Christmas are all due in stores

on Nov. 21.
