To me, rap is educational by definition so I don’t know why children’s shows need to shove rap down kid’s throats along with a lesson on how to tie their shoes or whatever else.
The contrived nature of wrapping (no pun) learning material in a Hiphop package is usually corny as fuck but this very educational song about making curry doesn’t feel that way.
Jamil Suleman & Spekulation are knowledgeable enough to know how cheesy something like a rap song about making Curry-NA-Hurry can be, so they set the stage correctly, and immediately, with a laugh track and family sitcom vibe to match the visuals. The beat is definitely infectious and Jamil can really rap, which makes the track an enjoyable listen.
