Cool Kids: Arrested Development- Mr. Wendal
Submitted by [email protected] on January 29, 2014
Arrested Development: a comedic television series, and a 90's hip hop duo. Both great forms of entertainment, but the latter is for kids too! Arrested Development formed in 1988 and released their first album in '92 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of... which featured this song, "Mr. Wendal". At the time, a lot of the hip hop scene was focused on gangsta rap like Dr. Dre's album The Chronic, released the same year as Arrested Development's first. A.D. aimed to provide an alternative to popular rap that focused on positive messages. This song, for example, gives you another perspective on how to look at homeless people, or those regarded as "nobody's". If you're interested in introducing your kids to hip-hop, this would be a great place to start.
