Description


O is for Old School takes you and your lil’ one on an alphabetical journey through the most iconic words and phrases in hip-hop.

For new parents, hip-hop lingo takes on new meanings: now Peace comes at naptime, a Hood is worn on a head and when baby’s Flow, it’s going to get wet.

Let your baby know that their parents weren’t always as Wack as they are right now, remember your Old School days and become the freshest parent in your playgroup; while your kid learns their ABCs like a G.

If you need to brush up on your slang, it’s All Good—there’s a hip-hop glossary at the back.

Word to the Muthas…and the poppas.
