If you are a parent like I am, there are times when listening to some of your
favorite hip hop jams elicits a cringe-inducing shock as your attempt to censor
inappropriate words seems like an act of futility. Enter Prince Paul and his new project Dino 5 for Baby Loves Hip Hop. Featuring Paul (DJ Stegosaurus), Ladybug Mecca (Tracy Triceratops), Wordsworth (Billy Brontosaurus), Scratch (Teo Pterodactyl) from The Roots, and Chali 2 Na (MC T Rex) from Jurassic 5, Dino 5 (get it?) is actually quality hip hop for kids to learn their ABC's, how to count, and other life lessons to some decent beats. Anyone who's ever been victimized by Hip Hop Harry knows what I'm talking about. Best of all, Supasista Ursula Rucker narrates the album and Posdnous and Dave from De La Soul make special guest appearances. What's there not to love?
