Rapper ‘Lil Chris‘ Parker and the Parker family of Memphis, TN appeared on ABC’s reality TV show “Wife Swap” tonight (July 30) and the 9 year-old rapper had his rap career temporarily taken away from him by his new temporary Cryptozoologist mom Tracy Robinson who believed the young rapper’s dad Robert Parker and mom Andrea Parker both put too much time into Lil Chris’ hip hop career than they put into their whole family.
One week after arriving to the Parker family’s home, the new mom set the new rules into play and turns everyone into cryptozoologists (monster hunters). Robert Parker, Lil Chris’ father, wasn’t allowed to promote Lil Chris’ rap career and instead had to tag along with the rest of the family on a trip to Arkansas to look for “The Monster.”
Meanwhile, Andrea, Lil Chris’ mom, was at her new home where she was setting new rules similar to her own home but changing the son of her new family – Josh Robinson – into a rap star, which was met with multiple confrontations by the father Rob Robinson who was simply much more interested in hunting for “The Swamp Ape,” like he mostly did with his own wife Tracy Robinson before his new temporary wife Andrea Parker arrived.
They didn’t end up finding “The Monster” but “Lil Chris” and the rest of the Parker kids ended up having a fun time with their new temporary lives. Andrea also gave her new family a great new experience when son Josh, the lonely young man who was staying at home while his family sought out “The Swamp Ape,” became the new confident out-going, hip hop styled “Big Josh.”
The family had such a nice time swapping wives that they actually met up together, a “Wife Swap” first, and recorded a new hip hop “Monster” song.
“Wife Swap” aired on ABC 24 Friday July 30th at 7:00 p.m.
