This is when I was a teacher, yes a real teacher. I'm talking my name on the report card, teacher.
The reason im so proud of this accomplishment is because not only was my certification rate, higher than college but I did it without college. I also taught this to high school students, that were treated as if they weren't smart enough.
How'd I do it, approached teaching, the same way I approach music. Being totally honest, about the neighborhood, the system, how we are expected to fail and how we can still win. In my class, I didn't ignore the streets, I embraced them. Pointing out how smart you needed to be to sell drugs and showing the parallels of running a business and running a block.
Rapper and teachers, seem like opposite ends of the spectrum but when you are #hiphop you'll find they are one in the same. #ThrowbackThursday#TBT
This beat has it all. Strings tremble as piano chords shift into a horn ensemble chorus. Strong bass and lows buzz give the beat a dark foundational tone while running hats and toms keep up the tempo.
