New Supergroup The Dino 5 Preparing New Album “Baby Loves Hip Hop”

Prince Paul loves to push the boundaries of hip hop. This spring he’s dropping his first official children’s album, comprised of a super group of MCs. The album, Baby Loves Hip Hop is actually the second instalment in the popular children’s series, Baby Loves Music, on Ropeadope Records. Described as a “book-on-tape”, Baby Loves Hip Hop will follow a group of five dinosaur friends, The Dino-5, on a musical adventure.

The five rappers playing the parts are Chali 2na of Jurassic 5 (MC T-Rex); Lady Bug Mecca of Digable Plants (Tracy Triceratops); Scratch from The Roots (TEO Pterodactyl); and Wordsworth (Billy Brontosaurus). Prince Paul will take on the role of DJ Stegosaurus. Grammy Award winning poet Ursula Rucker will narrate the CD and Chris Rock has reportedly optioned the story for a Broadway production. The new album is set to hit stores in April 1st.
