Ludacris Takes Llama Llama Red Pajama To The Red Light District (Video)
Since the days of Slick Rick, Hip-Hop has had a curious relationship with children’s stories. Recently, Los Angeles’ Power 106 decided to take that connection and run with it. Over the last few months, the radio station has had several rappers put their stamp on spirited readings of the 2005 bedtime story by Anna Dewdney, titled Llama Llama Red Pajama.
Over the last 2 months several artists have rapped the story, including Desiigner, Lecrae, Jeezy, D.R.A.M., Migos and more. Recently, Ludacris took his shot at interpreting the nursery rhyme, and he went all the way in. Accompanied by an original beat, Luda made the story a full on song, complete with ad libs, hand gestures and enough energy to fill the room.
The stunt comes at the same time that Get On Down Records has announced that they will be making Slick Rick’s song “Children’s Story” into an actual book. It is a gesture no one would have imagined upon the song’s release nearly 30 years ago, back in 1988. Then again, who would have believed that the leader of the world’s most dangerous group would have been a star in movies for the family? In the words of The Notorious B.I.G., “things done changed.”
#bonusbeats. Whether or not you’re a fan of Migos, their rendition of Llama Llama Red Pajama to “Bad & Boujee” is priceless.
