Welcome to the Inappropriate Children’s Rap Chorus Hall of FamePosted by Nathan S. on 03/31/12 | Filed under Features
Weekend Edition: RefinedHype’s most popular stories this week, running from Saturday to Monday morning.
“You know what’d be awesome? If we got a bunch of kids to sing the chorus on this song about fucking bitches and slinging dope.” Apparently that’s a conversation that’s played out again and again in studios because the “inappropriate children’s rap chorus” formula is a full-fledged phenomenon.
The criteria is simple: would a responsible parent want their child listening to the song, even though it features a bunch of kids on the hook? If the answer is NO, then it qualifies. (This means I wouldn’t actually include Jay-Z’s “Hard Knock Life”, the song’s pretty serious.)
Bonus points for actually bringing in kids to the studio to record an original hook (vs. a sample), and bonus points for increased inappropriateness.
Together we can find the most Inappropriate Children’s Rap Chorus of All-Time! (I have a dream!)1. Jibbs - Chain Hang Low 2. Trick Daddy - Im a Thug 3. Tony Yayo - Somebody Snitched on Me 4. Yung Joc - Coffee Shop 5. Gucci Mane - Lemonade 6. R.A. The Rugged Man - What the Fuck
