This ain’t rappin, this is street-hop! This year the gang at Sesame Street celebrates 40 Years of edutainment! So for this Friday Five I’m highlighting Big Bird and the crew’s influence on hip-hop. This post is brought to you by the letter U:)

Samples the outrro of the Sesame Street theme song, “Funky Chimes.” (Props to SRD)

2) Alchemist and Agallah, “Crookie Monster”

3) The AOK collective flips the familiar chant into a crowd wrecking group anthem.
