WTF Files: Ghetto Rhymes
A Baltimore mother and daughter joined forces to pen a book of nursery rhymes titled Ghetto Rhymes - A Collection of Traditional Nursery Rhymes with a Ghetto Twist. The book takes traditional nursery rhyme characters and forces them to deal with such inner-city issues as welfare, unemployment, food stamps and getting by day-to-day in the hood.
In Ghetto Rhymes, everybody's favorite incredible edible egg Humpty is harassed and arrested by the cops causing his untimely demise, Miss Muffit has 17 kids and a dead beat babydaddy and Mary takes her little lamb to the butcher. Hey, a nigga gotta eat one way or another.
Here is a video of the pair giving their explanation of the book.
The same people who religiously watch Tyler Perry's plays at every family function are going to love this but I think they are missing their target audience. Having several friends and family members who could be classified as ghetto I know that the last thing they are going to do is cut into their own time to read to their kids. My people, my people.
Use don't abuse (ie. adding me to your site's mailing list). And for the love of God please stop sending mp3 files of your music. I am not Clive Davis and to be frank I probably don't want to hear the shit anyway. You should also know that I take my slow, precious time responding to email. And sometimes I don't respond at all.
