Rap-A-Lot School Days

During the prime years of the mighty Rap-A-Lot label, there were no less than five songs released that related to school. Was this part of some sort of community service agreement? It could be argued that the Geto Boy‘s song was nothing to do with school, but it includes Willie D‘s teacher Miss Elaine, so that’s close enough. It’s fair to say there are some mixed messages here – to hear Raheem and 2 Low (who was still in school when he made this) tell it, the school yard is nothing but good times and sex rhymes. But then Willie D admits that ‘School is a drag, and sometimes you’re teacher gets mad’, while he had previously ‘beat his teacher down with a gun’ on that Geto Boys shit. Big Mike and 3-2 of the Convicts cut straight to the chase and let us know what they think about getting a worthless ‘edumication’.

2 Low – ‘Class Clown’

Convicts – ‘Fuck School’

Geto Boys – ‘Assassins’

Raheem – ‘Schooldaze’

Willie D – ‘Go Back 2 School’

While not really a track about school, ‘Fuck Em’ does include a bit of heated bushwick ranting about teachers.

The whole faculty’s on crack
You say I can’t wear my hat, but yo, fuck that

and the line to dis a teacher of all time:
“You call yourselves teachers; what’s being taught?/How to fuck kids and not get caught.” That’s so ill.
