AllMusic Review by

The work of over 50 artists has been reworked as children's lullabies for the Rockabye Baby! series, so it shouldn't be a huge surprise to see the name of the multi-platinum rap star on the list with Lullaby Renditions of Jay-Z. What is surprising is how Jigga's songs are still totally recognizable, even when transformed into gentle melodies constructed by xylophones, bells, music box tones, and flutes. Highlights include "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)," "Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)," "Young Forever," and the oddly soothing "Big Pimpin'." Good chance Blue Ivy Carter is peacefully resting to this album right now.
