ATL Middle School Teacher Turns “Bad and Boujee” into a Civil War History Lesson

When you want to reach your middle school students and teach them an important American History lesson at the same time, where do you turn? A contemporary piece of art, right? Maybe Hamilton?

Here’s a much better idea: The Migos.

One middle school teacher in Atlanta went that route during his U.S. History class, as he covered the events and context of the American Civil War. Over Metro Boomin’s now iconic instrumental, the teacher reworked “Bad and Boujee” into “Mad and Losing” along with copious ad-libs.

In video footage below, you can see the teacher, a friend of the tweeter, perform his rap for the classroom.

The song covers the Confederacy’s loss in the Civll War and how it related to Abraham Lincoln’s enacting the Emancipation Proclamation, even touching on signature battles along the way. At first the class seems skeptical, but they soon catch the vibe.

Between kindergarteners painting murals of Chance and this, we’re feeling a little better about the future of education in this country.
