Hip hop songs for kids can introduce kids to a new genre of music. Enjoy your favorite clean rap songs for kids without worrying about the message your kids are listening to or having a song full of bleeps. Kid friendly rap lyrics can be hard to find, so I’ve done the research for you with this playlist!
So, I’ve got this playlist that I use for running. It’s a “you can do this last 5 minutes!” kind of play list.

- Early decades are typically cleaner than later decades. So, if you’re super anxious, I would stick to the 90’s genre.
