There are certain hip hop artists who combine amazing flow with a ridiculously personable, accessible voice. We should deploy these cats to read children’s books for a whole slew of ages. From Goodnight Moon to The Velveteen Rabbit to James and the Giant Peach. Obviously they'd crush any Shel Silverstien or Dr. Seuss.
Man what I'd give to hear these books read by Posdnuos, Pete Rock, Grand Pubah, Chubb Rock, MF Doom, Eminem, Ludacris. And, needless to say, this wouldn't be a bad thing for the kids either.
