The Dino 5 Get Live

The RWC crew have always been down with Hip Hop being used as an educational tool...Run DMC taught us to wear Adidas and 2 Live Crew taught us how to get it on with the ladies.  The Dino 5 take it to the next level though.

The Dino 5 is a children's audio book and cartoon (soon) headed by hip-hop legend Prince Paul. Badness. Check the line up...too good to be true.  More info here.

DJ Stegosaurus - Prince Paul
MC T-Rex - Chali 2na (of Jurassic 5)
Tracy Triceratops - Ladybug Mecca (of Digable Planets)
Billy Brontosaurus - Wordsworth (of eMC)
Teo Pterodactyl - Scratch (of The Roots)

Strangely this isn't the first time Hip Hop has invaded kids TV.  Queen Latifah used to hang with Mr Cooper on Sesame Street.

Queen Latifah is not the only Hip Hop head chillin' on Sesame Street...Arrested Development, LL Cool J and Wyclef have been known to cotch.

...And of course how could we forget Biz Markie on Yo Gabba Gabba.
