Hip Hop Tots

A 33-year-old J. Walter Thompson copywriter named Daniel A. Cohen is overhauling “Western civilization’s canon of nursery rhymes” and setting “it to hip-hop rhythms,” reports Robin Finn in The New York Times. He’s now selling his disc, called “Bust a Nursery Rhyme” at Wal-Mart, among other places. Sample this: “Humpty Dumpty got out of bed, Humpty Dumpty shined his egg head…Humpty Dumpty climbed to the top, Humpty Dumpty felt the beat drop.” Source: Reveries.com
