Whether you’re a parent, sibling, friend, niece or nephew, we all at some point have to succumb to the needs of a child. And if you’re fortunate enough, this may include listening to Doc McStuffins and Leap Frog tunes on rounds of repeat.
For your senses, this can feel like a trip through the canals of hell. But never fear, as a new parent, Jimmy Kimmel knows your pain. He came up with the ultimate solution to this popular dilemma by calling on the genius of Ice Cube, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil’ Jon, A$AP Rocky and Big Sean.
The flick shows each rapper’s iconic song flipped with lyrics suitable for child’s play.
Instead of spittin’ about not using his AK for the day, Ice Cube’s legendary lines celebrate missing school due to the weather:
“I didn’t have to have a school day…I gotta say it was a snow day.”
An alteration of “F— Tha Police” switches the song into a more endearing version with “Hug Tha Police.”
Lil Jon’s “Get Low” morphs into a chant about tether ball:
“On the playground! Hit the ball! Let’s all play tether-ball! Ah, smack, smack, smack, smack little tether! Smack, smack, smack, smack that ball!”
And the absolute cherry on top is when Big Sean’s “IDFW” drops into statement about the difficulty of tying one’s shoes:
“No, I can’t tie my shoes! There’s a million, trillion things I’d rather learn to do!”
So check out the clip above, for relief from child programming, or a big laugh. Either way you’re sure to enjoy these alternate hits. Watch the clip above.
