I had to go with Tragedy,yeah he’s in the BING-yet again,but his legacy includes-The Rebel & Live Motivator from Marley’s:in Control vol.1,and his Opus-self titled:Intelligent Hoodlum,featured groundbreaking and(mostly uncredited Production)from LARGE PROFESSOR.And this dude(Trag) influenced most of the mid ’90′s emcees in Queens,so it’s Tragedy all day for me.

These 2 articles have been f’n hilarious. I guess I never realized how many kiddy rappers there were.

I gotta go with Trag tho his shit was sharp and he gets bonus points for putting CNN on.

Comment by Frost Gamble 02.10.09 @

There’s mad videos on youtube of Shyheim talking about his ‘bid upstate’.

Comment by farns 02.10.09 @

Think I’m gonna go with Trag. He was putting out quality stuff at a real young age. I would go with Mobb but their early stuff never really caught my ear.

Shyheim would be third. The rest are trash. I remember I had some promo stickers for A+ and DJ Muggs’ solo LP and I stuck them all over a stop sign or something.

The Puppies had a top 40 with that? Never knew. I think their highlight was that “Your Momma’s on Crack Rock” song though.

trag all day….intelligent hoodlum 12″ was basically nas before nas.

Comment by Mercilesz 02.10.09 @

Co-signing R. Jones, haroon, and mercilesz…Tragedy all day.

Comment by bronxbred 02.10.09 @

definitely Trag. I gotta add who the first kid rapper I heard, T Omar in ’85. Had a track called “I’m Only 9″ on Raspur. Actually that same night I heard that track. I heard Hassan’s “Co’ Rock Stuff” that had a ill verse by “Little 7″ with the classic props to his DJ, “7-11, he deserves recognition, I’ll be glad when he can find some competition!”.

What about Uptown of “Dope On Plastic” fame. Wasn’t he like 13 when he dropped that “Dope On Plastic” joint?

Comment by Brock 02.11.09 @

what about Special Ed

Comment by rico 02.11.09 @

Putting Tragedy in is a cheat imo because that’s an OG right there. But Shyhiem’s “On and On” is a great track, and A+’s Latch-Key Child record is crazy.

Comment by Supreme Neck Protector 02.11.09 @

Who was that kid who appeared on that one De La 12″ ‘Mack Daddy on the left’ – was that Chi Ali – I used to like that joint.

Comment by ED209˚ 02.11.09 @

chi ali.

Comment by Mercilesz 02.11.09 @

it gotta’ be Tragedy for the win!

Comment by RowanB 02.11.09 @

Anyone remember T. Omar with “I’m Only Nine”? He was on Rapsur so I guess he was Bobby Jimmy’s protege. I don’t know if that was the first kiddy rap record but it might be the worst.

Comment by Thunderthud 02.11.09 @

I reckon it’s got to be be Shyheim for the ‘kid rap’ win, wheras Trag was more of a ‘conventional’ hip hop legend, ultimately, and Mobb Deep and Tha Youngstas are more your moody teenagers.

I might be prejudiced by the xylophones on the Premier remix of ‘On and On’, however. Ace remix.

Comment by Eyechild 02.11.09 @

right, shyheim 2nd album is nice.
what about wu-tang’s siblings?

Comment by broski 02.12.09 @

“nerd comment”: funny! but i sincerely doubt jermaine dupri ever wrote a rhyme himself! if you listen to “jump”, that reminds of “mad” skillz style… in “ghostwriter” he says:
“Remember the little kids, the one that was in ______ group?
I’m the reason you though they lil raps was so cute” and also “fuck Jermaine Dupri and his whole label cause I ain’t never get my plaque, nig*a”
ps so… when a ghostwriting post?
LL > RUN DMC
Serch > UTFO
Del > Ice Cube
etc…

Comment by nerdy gordy 02.12.09 @

Yeah, Robbie!!! A ghost writing piece would def. be a good look.

Comment by Brock 02.13.09 @

Comment by ED209˚ 02.13.09 @

Comment by DANKWEED 02.13.09 @

Yeah Robbie.what up with a ghostwriters post??

Kane > LL (walking with a panther)
Kam > Ice-Cube(Death certificate:Life side)
Del > Ice Cube,Yo Yo( Amerikkka’s most&Make way)
Dj Bobbybobcat > LL(I’M Bad,I Need Love)

Comment by R.Jones 02.15.09 @
