{maybe my proudest mommy moment yet}

my son likes rap music.  this is both surprising and at the same time not at all.  i grew up on rap music.  tupac.  wutang clan.  method man {i know he's technically part of wu tang} you name it, i loved it.  but the thing is, we don't listen to rap music in front of the kids.  so where did his love of rap come from?

but angela, rap music is everywhere.  he heard it at school.  saw it on tv, you say.  yes.  this could be true.  EXCEPT he doesn't like "today's" rappers.  he hadn't even heard thrift shop until tuesday night when we went to target and i serenaded him on the way home.  don't worry, he loves it when i sing to him.  ;)

so this is when this happened.

bay:  i don't really like the rappers today.  they're weak.  i like C.R.E.A.M.

me:  hahahaha C.R.E.A.M.?

bay:  yeah, you know.  cash rules everything around me....

me:  CREAM GET THE MONEY, DOLLA DOLLA BILLS YA'LL.  of course i know what C.R.E.A.M. is bailey.

bay:  oh.

and that's when i was both super proud of him and able to absolutely mortify him in the same moment.  winning!  maybe his love of good rap is in his genes.  you're welcome bay!  ;)

and of course i have to share both videos with you.  what are you opinions?  are today's rappers weak or are they awesome in their own right?


  1. Oh god those were the days. If he only knew what is mom was like back in the 90's LOL. I love that he's keeping the tradition alive!!!

    1. right???? hahahaha. i think he'd be mortified. i can't wait!

  2. Wu Tang Clan was and still is one of my favorite rap groups! I'm with Bay, today's rappers are "weak", LOL! ;)

  3. Tupac was our college summer soundtrack. We spent many days tanning by our apartment's pool, drinking beer and cheap rum and listening to "California Love". :D
