Milwaukee Charter School-Excellence First!

This is a great video.    It’s by a pair of 11 year old 6th graders from Milwaukee Excellence Charter school.  They borrowed a beat from Tee Grizley’s song,First Day Out.  The two young girls are students of teacher Terrance Sims.  He uses music to connect better with his students. “I wrote this song to get kids excited for the new school year and it picked up steam and turned into a full video,” Terrance explained. “It was a great experience as it kicked off our performing arts club.”  I personally think young black children need more rap songs like this.  They need more positive lyrics that express black pride and to inspire them to achieve greatness.  Too much of rap music today is filled with sex,violence and anti-blackness.  I salute these young black children!  They are already ahead of the game.  This is black genius. This is great to see!  We more hip hop culture to represent like this.
