What do you do when you’re around a group of impressionable tykes but you really, really just want to blast some N.W.A.? Easy: you pop in Hip-Hop Kidz Bop, a collection of reinvented rap songs catered to kids that takes out “all the fucks, bitches, hoes, dick suckin’, and booty lickin’.”
That’s the product dreamt up by Jimmy Kimmel, who recruited Ice Cube, Lil Jon, Ty Dolla $ign, A$AP Rocky, and Big Sean to reinvent their raciest tracks so the “li'l homies can finally enjoy” their music, as Cube explains.
In this crazy Kidz Bop universe, Cube’s “Good Day” becomes “Snow Day,” Ty’s “Paranoid” becomes bubble-bath anthem “Dirty Boy,” Rocky’s “Fuckin’ Problems” becomes “Trucking Problems,” and Sean’s “I Don’t Fuck With You” gets warped into “I Can’t Tie My Shoes.” Most impressively, Jon’s raunchy, grind-friendly “Get Low” gets turned into a track about playing tetherball on the playground, and N.W.A.’s “Fuck Tha Police” inspires friendlier relations between cops and kids when it becomes “Hug Tha Police.”
Each aforementioned rapper appears in the faux-promo and sounds utterly psyched for this idea, so hey, it might just be ludicrous enough to work. Get on it, Kidz Bop.
