"Marco Polo" (CD Single)
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this hip-hop "duet" features obscene language ("f--k," "fags," "p---y," and the "N" word a lot) and talks about money, hoes, and showing off material things. The music video shows a bunch of girls in skimpy bikinis dancing around Bow Wow and Soulja Boy.
What's the story?
Is it any good?
Unless they're trying to appeal to 8-year-olds -- which highly unlikely given the content -- it's unclear why this song is even titled "Marco Polo" when you hear the lyrics. They're lame, with the usual boasting about money, hoes, and all the bling that comes along with "success." The song is catchy, but not in a good way. Soulja Boy's voice is monotone and annoying, and Bow Wow does little to sharpen it up.
