Bun B and Lupe Fiasco debate a schoolteacher - Are Rappers Role Models?
Bun B makes some really good points. Lupe chimes in at the 6:55 mark, but please watch the whole thing.
Lupe: “I challenge you, throw away all them books. Throw away all of them, all the tests, everything, right. And teach them kids something meaningful. Teach them how to grow a plant. Teach them something meaningful, in their lives, that they can do themselves. As opposed to just going in there and teaching them this English which they never gonna use, or teaching them this Math which they ain’t never gonna use, or teaching them this History that’s backwards, that they never gonna use……. You just as guilty as Lil Wayne. Miseducation is miseducation no matter how you put it. Whether it’s coming through the radio station or it’s coming out of a book or a teacher. Miseducation is miseducation, no matter who’s saying it.”
