And my parents thought a degree in music would be a waste.

I am a classically trained singer. I minored in vocal performance. My kids are just as likely to hear a Mozart aria as they are to hear “The Wheels on the Bus”.

So why did I just catch myself singing 99 Problems to my son?

  1. My eleven-year-old, at the most inappropriate times, likes to bust out with, “I like big BUTTS and I cannot lie! You tothah brutha’s can’t deny!”

  2. “I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one.”

    Good times!

  3. that kid is alright mister hand..

  4. Hysterical! My 3 year old niece is currently singing “My humps, my humps, my lovely lady lumps” from the Black Eyed Peas. How appropriate does that sound at day care?

  5. I’m a dork. I don’t even know that song.

  6. Personally, I listen to all kinds of different music, and hip-hop happens to be one of them. I always find it kind of frustrating when being confronted with people’s distorted perception of hip-hop. Of course it can be dumb, like most pop music, but there is so much good stuff out there too.
    The aesthetics of hip-hop are simply different than those of classical music, not better or worse.

  7. I also like both hip-hop and classical, but I think there is a distinct difference in quality between the two. To compare them as complete equals is like comparing vintage wine to Coke. One is created by master craftsmen with centuries of experience behind their work, the other is sugar water with some food coloring in it.

  8. You shouldn’t be doing that
