Summary

A hip hop alphabet book parody for parents who used to be dope.

James' best friend Robbie used to be dope, and then his son was born. So James wrote `O is for Old School' to remind him (and his little boy) that he wasn't always as wack as he is right now. This book will take you from A-to-the-Z through the most iconic words and phrases in hip hop. But you'll soon learn that for new parents these words have new meanings: Hoods are worn on heads, Peace comes at naptime and when they're Ballin' it seems like they'll never stop, unless you put a Sucker in it. So now's your chance to become the freshest parent in your playgroup; while your kid learns their ABCs like a G. Word to the muthas (and the papas).
