Parenthood Compilation

Whenever I piece together a thematic rap compilation I am struck by this genre’s honesty and its currently unrivaled breadth of perspective. There is no doubt in my mind that most people, including doting parents, have mixed feelings about children, but my guess is that you’d be hard pressed to find too many non-rap songs that delve into the spectrum of emotional responses that parenthood inspires. From rhapsodizing about the pitter patter of little feet to dropping knowledge on one’s as yet unborn seed, to examining the world from the perspective of a fetus to fantasizing about kicking one’s baby muvva in the tummy, rap does it all, and with greater dispatch than that faggoty spoken word shit your girlfriend’s trying to sell you on. Enjoy. — Thun
