Hip-Hop is now being used as a major tool in taking education to the next level. One Rockdale County, Georgia teacher, David Yancey, is one of the very few who have taken full advantage of this method when he’d decided to post videos of himself, using hit songs like Adele’s “Hello” and Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” to spice up the curriculum for his class.

Yancey’s latest lesson, however, seemed to go viral, when he’d chosen to use Migos’ ‘Bad & Boujee’ and remade the lyrics into a song called ‘Mad & Loosing,’ which was an easy way to get the kids involved.

“You know, it’s your boy, Honest Abe, making this song to shut down the lames,” Yancey first began his lesson, speaking of Abraham Lincoln, the Gettysburg Address and the Emancipation Proclamation.

The viral clip also shows his students doing ad-libs and dancing at their desks.

“It’s not just random things that are being thrown together,” he told The Atlanta-Journal Constitution. “I’m very intentional … on what content I’m delivering. I’ll do the lesson, and I pull it all together in a song.”

Get more familiar with Mr. Yancey’s artistic way of getting his students excited about learning in the video clip below:
