The Cruz Show on Power 106 Los Angeles has a running segment where MCs rap the children’s book Llama Llama Red Pajama over a beat.

 

Besides it being fun to hear a children’s book getting some rap treatment, it provides an interesting way to get a sense of how MCs approach flow differently and approach rap with a particular style. 

If you are unfamiliar with the artists you might find it worth listening to their other music to get a sense of how their approach to rapping Llama Llama Red Pajama relates to their general flow and style.

It could be interesting to get some conversations and related projects going on flow, style, and even how a beat might impact the sound of someone’s rap. 

Most of these videos would are fine to include in school contexts, though use your own judgment for the few that are explicit or have a curse thrown in.

By the way, Llama Llama Red Pajama is not the only children’s book with some rap treatment. Tyler the Creator rapped the Dr. Seuss Book, What Pet Should I Get on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, with some banter back and forth about flow.
