It would appear that the next entry in the growing Rockabye Baby series will reinterpret a bunch of Jay-Z songs as lullabies. If you haven’t heard of these projects before, a press release describes them as “making rock music baby-friendly and kids’ music adult friendly.” In this case, it’s achieved through turning Jigga’s best work into songs made up of xylophone, bells and flute. Additionally, the album will come with games based on Hov’s career and a recipe for “Big Pumpkin” baby food. LOL.
