Oh the pain

So, do I win my award for father of the year yet?

One of the things I like doing is introducing my kids to all sorts of different stuff.  They've been exposed to a variety of artists, song, and music styles - classical, Dutch progressive metal, pop, rock, The Beatles, Elvis, Big Pig, Jean Michel Jarre, blues, show tunes, Indian, Celtic, The Residents, the KLF, country and western, a good range of stuff from the 1930s to now...  It's all in an effort to let them find their own loves and likes by giving them the broadest possible base.

And it's worked well.  They like a big range of stuff, but I've been aware of a couple of big gaps.  So I've done some research, and am starting to go through a chunk of stuff I'm unfamiliar with in order to have some around for them.

I'm speaking of... rap. Collapse )
