She said WHAT? Nicki Minaj gets a family-friendly remake

I was listening to a new Nicki Minaj song “Pound the Alarm” the other day and it struck me about how parents feel about their young teens listening to songs with lyrics like:

Sexy, sexy that’s all I do
If you need a bad bitch
Let me call a few
Pumps on and them little mini skirts is out
I see some good girls, I’mma turn ‘em out
Ok bottle, sip, bottle, guzzle
I’m a bad bitch, no muzzle, hey?
Bottle, sip, bottle, guzzle
I’m a bad bitch, no muzzle, let’s go.

We CAN have great songs that make you want to dance and party but without the degrading/vulgar lyrics. I would like to share an inspirational remake of this song done by my friend Monica Morong: The Conscious World Hip Hop Mom. She didn’t want her kids listening to these lyrics so she rewrote them and uploaded her own version. Awesome! Click on the image below to have a listen…she’s just getting started!

Here are some other great suggestions for kid friendly music:

  • Very efficiently written information. It will be helpful to everyone who usess it, including yours truly :) . Keep doing what you are doing – can’r wait to read more posts.

  • new books on lung cancer

  • Funny to me how they don’t mention that Kleer delivers wireless audio that is CD-quality, lossless, uncompressed
    stereo audio.

  • You’ve really written a very good quality article here. Thank you very much for sharing.

  • This web site is really a walk-through for all of the info you wanted about this and didn’t know who to ask. Glimpse here, and you’ll definitely discover it.

  • Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  • This website is amazing. I will tell about it to my friends and anybody that could be interested in this subject. Great work guys!

  • If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  • Wow! Your website is amazing!! I will recommend it to my brother and anyone that could be attracted to this object. Great work girls!!

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
