FTT #3 – A R.O.L.O Rap

By IYWP Intern Rebecca Jefferson

Last week R.O.L.O may have ended, but there’s still stunning student work to be shared. I’d like to take this Tuesday to spotlight the Rap a group of students wrote together during the Musicians Workshop last week. The students got to hear about the writing process of an established rapper and used it to create a rap of their own! The student “producers” listed at the bottom, acted much the way a real producer would during the writing process, by offering suggestions and alternate lines to maintain rhythm and clarity.

Facts Tho

A Rap by Skye, Tory, Josh, Devion, and Zariah

Chorus (All):

I ain’t got no money, that’s facts though

I got homework every day, and it stacks though

I ain’t clean my room, that’s facts though

I threw the dirty diaper in the trash though

 

Verse 1 (Skye):

I be working every day, I don’t get allowance

I’m just trying to get PAID

I got protein in my body and

it’s keeping me going…

Even when I’m flowin’

I hacked into the Wi-Fi and that’s facts though!

 

Verse 2 (Josh)

I get allowance though, that’s facts

Wish I was 21, getting stacks

Last night I snuck some snacks

Got me some chicken…you know I’m black

I’m a real baller I ain’t wack

And yeah, that’s facts.

 

Verse 3 (Tory)

Yeah, I’m spittin’ facts

No, I don’t got racks

I’m like Tetris–Stacked

Got slapped in my back

Waffler with no butter

It’s hot like the summer

Gotta do my homework

Ugh, it’s a real bummer

Got Cubs on his shirt

Took an exam but still gotta do work

We all ain’t got no money and its facts though

Flip a penny to a dollar gettin’ racks bro!

 

Chorus (All)

I ain’t got no money, that’s facts though

I got homework every day, in stacks though

I ain’t clean my room, that’s facts though

I threw that dirty diaper in the trash though!

 

Produced by Devion and Zariah

Lyrics by Josh, Tory, and Skye
