Dad's Hilarious "Straight Outta Compton" Parody is About All of Us

Neal Rodriguez builds websites for a living, and works hard along with his wife to raise his two sons well. "Our thing is road trips, karate class, writing and math drills with the boys, computer work, and trying to eat right and work out," he says. "A big part of my personal life (aside from work) is raising my kids to be productive self-sufficient individuals."

So when he had the titular track of " Straight Outta Compton" in his head shortly after screening the film, it was easy enough to sub in Cross Bay (the primary boulevard near their home in Howard Beach, New York) and write a new song about their awesome adventures as a family.

"My two kids are in third grade and kindergarten, so I work with them intensively on their school work, and take them to MMA (karate) class twice a week to keep them in shape," he explains.

"I'm always giving them goals. So they have to behave in school, so we could go on trips to Universal Studios, go-cart racing, and receive toys from time to time. I've encountered problems with raising kids, for which I initially don't have solutions. Or my solutions don't work the first time. So I'm like a mad scientist trying to figure out the best way to get them to behave in school, not fight with each other and learn the material in school."

He admits that they're not a perfect family (who is, really?) and like other moms and dads, he and his wife face challenges and issues that they have to work out as they go. He took pages out of their own family story to highlight in their cute-as-hell video.

What's not to love about a family who faces challenges, then takes a classic rap song and melds it to share their family story?

"Overall, we're basically a family trying our best to be happy and live a productive life," he says.

And yes, we love them for that.
