Happy Father’s Day From Classick Material

Posted: June 18, 2011 in hip hop

Wow, I’ve been a Dad for a week now so I had to give a shout out to all the real father’s out there. Let me tell you, it’s one of the greatest things that has happen to me, but yet at the same time, a humbling experience. As my generation gets older, its awesome to see Dads of my era playing hip hop for their kids from the golden era. I feel if I play any of this new generation of  rap for my child, he will regress and possibly try to crawl back into the womb. So as I Dad, I feel obligated to teach and educate my child about the classics. The Roots, Wu-Tang, Nas, will all be new to my child’s ears. I can’t wait for my kid to hear a Dj Premier beat too.

  Moving along, I complied a playlist of albums that I found work best and provided for a laid back, yet fun vibe whether it’s changing a diaper or just spending time with your kid. These are not all hip hop albums mind you, but have a relation to hip hop. I’m love music too much just to restrict it to one genre. So give it a try.  Let me know what you think. Respect Dads!
