If you like your hip hop old school, but are still in elementary school, then Secret Agent 23 Skidoo has got you covered. Easy is a big-top, hip hop, upbeat collection of beats and rhymes from a dad that wasn t quite ready to succumb to purple dinosaurs and Kumbaya circles. Easy mixes traditional funk, bluegrass, reggae and blues over golden-age hip hop beats then tops it all off with a magical lyrical journey through a world populated with dragons, mermaids and blue grasshoppers. A positive thread flows throughout the lyrics reminding kids to have fun, live life to the fullest, and stay true to themselves, as is evidenced in the rollicking Gotta Be Me, [the] Free to Be... You and Me for the new millennium. (Mountain Xpress)

But I'm giving "Easy" a pass. I can stomach it. It doesn't make me cringe, and when I'm inevitably forced to listen to it on a 14 hour road trip, I might not look for a cliff to drive off. And with children's music, that's HUGE praise. Seriously. Like 5-star praise.
Secret Agent 23 Skidoo sounds a little bit like Chuck D from Public Enemy. Lyrically he's no Chuck D, which is a good thing since I'm not quite ready for my kids to start using Chuck's...creative lexicon. This album is a collection of well-rhymed stories suitable for kids of all ages. The beats are repetitive and simple, which can be a little ear splitting for grown ups, but is perfect for kids. My kids (4 year old twins) love "The Last Dragon" and "Luck" but my personal favorite is "Family Tree" with my favorite rhyme from the album, where 23 Skidoo says "I'm a little bit old school" and his cute-as-a-button daughter Saki says "and I'm a little bit preschool."
This one has been in the player since the day it arrived and I don't see it coming out any time soon. If you're tired of listening to kid-centric (read: annoying to all other forms of life) music, then this might be just what you're looking for.
And if Chuck D and 23 Skidoo team up in the future, maybe my kids will like it when they're old enough. If I pretend to hate it, of course.
