Netflix and Amazon are showing us when it comes to hip-hop, it’s not just Wu-Tang that’s “for the children.”
First, Amazon is partnering with the Roots for two children’s series.
The first of which, South Street Sounds, will follow three animated, music-loving children on one of the world’s most soulful blocks, ready to turn any moment into a concert. Not much is know of the second series, except that will be live-action.
On the Netflix side of things, we have the return of beloved “Science Guy” Bill Nye. In preparation for his forthcoming series Bill Nye Saves the World, which drops April 21 and may skew a little more mature subject matter than his previous show, Nye enlisted Tyler, the Creator for the theme song.
A spiritual successor to the ’90s original – get ready to chant “BILL! BILL! BILL!” again – it combines Tyler and Nye’s hyper-intelligent earnest awkwardness into one more sure-shot jam.
Your move, Yo! Gabba Gabba.
