    Seems cool if your into that kind of stuff….personally I’m more into the harder and realer Hip-Hop.

      why the hell is your comment even needed? It ain’t for you A##hole! As much as Disney, and the marketing media indoctrinate our children, the babies need as many paths to real music , art, and culture as they can get. Keep your bullsh*t comments to yourself

    excellent. my daughters favorite style of music is rap, so this is fantastic. she is three, her favorite show is hey gabba gabba and she doesnt need the cussing. i think this is a great idea. hiphop heads grow up and have babies, you know?

    It’s not meant to be for the older kids to listen to. Sesame street rappers like hurricane chris, soulja boy and kia shine will have some good competition without the cussing. These are respectable rappers coming together doing something positive.
