Rapping Bedtime Stories: Ep. 1 Brown Bear, Brown Bear
Posted: 8:36 am Wednesday, April 26th, 2017
I’m still brand new here, so you probably don’t know about my love of freestyle rap. And that’s fair.
I’m not sure that I’m any good, but I’ve been known to rap about current events, my friends, etc. and I have a lot of fun doing it…so if that ends up with you laughing hysterically at my expense, hey, that’s cool too.
Anywho, I’ve been looking for new things to rap about…and Ludacris just came to the rescue – BIG TIME!!
Have you seen this video of him freestyle rapping the kid’s book ‘Llama Llama Red Pajama’? It’s a staple in my house. I’ve read/heard it read a million times, but NEVER like this:
It was stuck in my head as soon as I heard it – and last night – we implemented ‘Rapping Bedtime Stories’ at my house.
Super easy. Just grab a book, pick a beat, and have an open mind that you may need to change things around a little bit on the fly to make it work.
I loved it so much, that I grabbed a few more books on my way to work this morning – solely so that I could rap them for you.
If you hate it – I’ll understand. If you don’t – maybe I’ll do more?
I grabbed a really simple book, ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear’ and decided to run with the beat that Luda used for my first one…hopefully there’s more to come!!
