Secret Agent 23 Skidoo CD Review

Secret Agent 23 Skidoo has more rhymes than Dr. Seuss and more mermaids, sea monsters and robots than any hip hop you’ve ever heard! Check out Kidzworld’s review of Skidoo’s awesome debut album, Easy.


All In The Family

An inscription on the inside of the Easy liner notes says “Small seeds grow big trees” and it’s signed by Saki—Skidoo’s five-year-old daughter and fellow MC. Saki proves hip hop is in her blood by keeping up with her dad and throwing down some rhymes on the infectious track, Family Tree. Skidoo does like to keep it in the family. After years touring as a hip hop MC, he realized he wanted to make a family-friendly hip hop album that kids and parents could enjoy together and he's certainly done that with Easy.


Hip Rhymes

Secret Agent 23 Skidoo makes surprisingly palatable hip hop. That means you’re not going to groan when you hear the lyrics and you won’t mind when the beats stay lodged in your head for days. Your parents will like the album because it’s educational and you’ll like it because it’s catchy and fun. Plus with three bonus tracks—include Robots Can’t Cry, I Like Fruit and Boogie Man—on top of the original thirteen, you’re definitely getting your money’s worth.


Life Lessons

Easy is good at imparting wisdom without bashing you over the head with lessons. The messages are positive but the medium is infectious, reggae-infused melodies, so you’re more likely to listen. Gotta Be Me preaches the importance of difference. It’s awesome to be yourself and sometimes it’s cool to be weird! Mysterious and New Day remind the audience to keep its eyes open to the small things in life that make it worth living. Easy is an album that's all about living it up while appreciating what you’ve got.


The Bottom Line

If you love the summertime jams of Bob Marley and wish Will Smith made less movies and more music, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo is the hip hop act for you.

    Old School or New School - What's Better?

    • Old School!
    • New school rap is way better.
    • I like both.
    • I don't listen to rap music.

It was worse than it intended to be.
