Kids these days won't ever know a world where hip-hop doesn't exist. Meanwhile, we keep wondering if our grandmothers even know who any of our favorite rappers are. We thought everyone knew Jay-Z (if only as "Beyonce's husband"), but were proven wrong last year when Jigga took the subway, nearly started a riot, and an elderly woman had the gall to ask him, "Are you famous?"
While Hov's homegirl Ellen Grossman certainly isn't alone in her obliviousness, there are also more older folks into hip-hop than you'd imagine. We did some digging and found several photos of today's top rappers either with their grandmothers or someone else's. Word to the Rapping Granny!
