Is there any rap music you'd recommend for your kids?
I don't listen to any, and never really have, other than the stuff that was real popular and probably considered generic (California Love/Make em say uh/Big Pimpin type stuff).

However....in trying to encourage my kids to develop a well rounded appreciation for different types of, ahem, artistic expression....Is there anything that you all would recommend that is good quality, but clean enough for the ears of a 9 year old? Specific songs to add to a playlist would be awesome....I appreciate it.

Northern State. A lot of Beastie Boys. De la Soul. There's some tracks you have to skip, but those tend to work. And there's always Alphabet Aerobics by Blackalicious:

None, Rap music is one of the largest contributors to the poisoning of our youth and the constant destruction of black youth. Rap is cancer.

Luniz - I Got 5 On It - if you don't mind constant referencese to weed.

311 - 8:16AM (sort of rap?)

Mo Money Mo Problems is a good clean song.

Arrested Development - Tennessee

Bone Thugs - Crossroads

Coolio - Fantastic Voyage

Beastie Boys would be great - License to Ill is pretty much clean.

Snow - Informer

Nothin' but a G Thang - has "ass" in it, other than that - clean.

Warren G - Regulate - just has "damn" and "ass" in it.

Montell Jordan - This is How We Do It (maybe not rap so much)

Your statement was dumb and a classic "get off my lawn" response. It's funny that the same exact statement was said about rock music when it was new.

His response didn't warrant much thought, because your statement had none.

It's my favorite rap/hip-hop song. Come at me, bro!

(FTR, I recommended The Chronic earlier in the thread as a joke - it is not for 9-year olds, just to be completely honest with y'all.)

Not even close.

Black youth are motivated and brainwashed by rap music that glorifies everything wrong in the world.
but by all means, keep your head buried in the sand.

Which is what we typically try to avoid....and rap music in no way has a monopoly on this.

My kids can rattle off Outkast radio edit tunes verbatim. Plus know lots of old school Biz Markie, Hammer and such. But now it's all really about Froggy afresh/ Kripy Kream. And of course Ralph Stanley.

Please list all the things that rap music glorifies that is "everything wrong in the world." I'm not saying it doesn't glorify some messed up stuff, but so do other artists and genres.

You have no evidence of this. I listened to tons of rap growing up, and turned out fine. So if it's, as you say, "one of the largest contributors to poisoning our youth", then why didn't I turn into a criminal / thug?

Sounds like you're the snowflake, since you're melting over a musical genre as the downfall of society.

Absolutely none and I'd probably rag them for listening to it if they did.
