If you're anything like me you had one major complaint about Reading Rainbow: It just wasn't hard enough. Kids want to get hyped to read. We want to feel like someone is yelling at us and won't stop yelling until we pick up a book. Threats and aggression are the cornerstones of a lifelong love affair with books. We needed a show with street cred that was willing to say, "Y'all gonna make me lose my mind up in here. Up in here. And by 'Up in here' I mean up in a book."

You may not have to take my word for it, but you do have to take DMX's.

See you at the library, mother f*ckers.
