Well, ALL THAT HAS CHANGED. Now that I've purchasd this book, I've had a reason to visit her EVERY WEEK, and together we sit on her "davenport" (that's what she calls her sofa) and peruse this fine piece of literature. This is like the Rosetta Stone of rap music. I can now confidently say that both my grandma and I can listen to various rap songs that we've never heard before and understand what's going on! I even rapped about instant grocery savings the other day, because I was so stoked to save $5.83 with my QFC Advantage Card (that was 38% in savings, yo).
I wish I could give this book six stars, because Amazon would send me an email telling me I can only give five stars and then I would give my grandma the other star, because she is great and, not to mention, a mighty fine rapper herself.
We actually used this as a birthday card, and circled, highlighted and drew pictures on the pages that reminded us of our friend. "I love you like a fat kid loves cake," I believe, was the big hit.

This is a really clever and funny book. I would definitely suggest giving this to a lover of rap and comedy. It's rap broken down to very proper English.Published 14 months ago by Bri Bird
