Ice Cube's "Kidz Bop Hip Hop" on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

On Monday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kimmel teamed up with rap superstars Ice Cube, Lil Jon, Ty Dolla $ign, A$AP Rocky and Big Sean to create Ice Cube’s Kidz Bop Hip Hop.

Kidz Bop is famously known for featuring kids performing the top hits from the Billboard Hot 100. Kimmel, being a father of three, was inspired in particular by his 23-month-old daughter Jane to create more variety in the typical kid-friendly music playlist by adding rap to the mix.

Ice Cube took on the challenge of remaking some of rap’s biggest hits with slight alterations to the lyrics. Songs like Big Sean’s “I Don’t F--- With You” changed to "I Can’t Tie My Shoes," and N.W.A’s "F--- Tha Police” became "Hug Tha Police."

Other renditions in the hilarious clip below include Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day,” Lil Jon’s “Get Low,” Ty Dolla $ign’s “Paranoid” and A$AP Rocky’s “F---in’ Problems.”
