Hip Hop songs for 10-14 year olds

I am teaching Hip Hop for the first time and this age group seems to be a struggle for music for me. I'm not necessarily one to listen to music appropriate for this age, as they are too old for High School Musical and Miley Cyrus now but they're too young for Rihanna and Britney...

I had some ideas with JBiebs but you know its not my forte so I was wondering if anybody else had any ideas other than Justin.

Thanks ;)

Ok, so I totally wrote out a long response but for some reason it didn't upsetting gah. So in short, try Jacob Latimore, Daft Punk, the Glitch Mob, Willow Smith, Shonlock, Group 1 Crew, Danity Kane (some is clean), Grits, Savvy, Big Time Rush, and Jazzy. If you don't have a music editor, Google Wavepad and you should be able to get it for free. Then you can just chop away at the age inappropriate parts of songs from Britney and Rihanna and such. It works wonders, because totally clean music is hard to come by these days.

I hope this helps, and feel free to PM me if you need more ideas!

Wow, I'm thinking yes that did help.
Also a lot of these songs bring back memories but I do enjoy bringing music from my childhood and presenting it to the students.


I use Audacity to cut all my music and I've had to cut out a lot of profanities over the past few years. I understand how hard it is to come by music that is appropriate for this age and style, when they all come to me asking to dance to LoveGame and Womanizer. But I will gather all these suggestions and see what I can find.

Thanks you :)

For that age group this summer I used "Turn it Up" by Ciara, "Paper, Scissors, Rock" by Timbaland (I think) and Chris Brown, "Don't stop the party" BEP (I have a really short edited version though).... I'm sure there are more that I can't think of!
