Watch Ice Cube, Lil Jon, A$AP Rocky’s ‘Hip-Hop Kidz Bop’ on ‘Kimmel’

“We took out all the f–ks and booty lickin’ so the little homies can enjoy my music,” said Ice Cube

What’s a hip-hop-loving dad like Jimmy Kimmel to do when he wants to listen to his favorite tracks in the company of his young daughter? Make a Hip-Hop Kidz Bop. Rappers Ice Cube, Lil Jon, Ty Dolla $ign and more joined Kimmel in reinventing their bawdiest tracks for, as Cube said, “the little homies.”

“I love the song, ‘Wheels On The Bus Go Round And Round,'” the late night host explained. “But after the 40th time in a row, I’m anxious for some variety.” So the clip features children singing about “trucking problems” (per A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin’ Problems). Big Sean’s “I Don’t Fuck With You” is becomes a track about footwear issues: “I can’t tie my shoes/ There’s a million trillion things I’d rather learn to do.” Ty Dolla $ign summarizes the premise of the skit succinctly: “If you love my song ‘Paranoid,’ you’ll love it even more without all that naughty language.”
