people who should never rap (7 days)

If there is a catergory for "people who should never rap," I am positive me and Jacob would fall under this category. However, sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures-- and you MUST RAP. This was the case last week. Jacob realized that he had a big project for his History of Creativity class due; he had no ideas of what he could do; he also had very little time to actually do it. creativity a requirement + no ideas + no time = recipe for lame project. This particular project had to demonstrate ingenious creativity, while synthesizing something he had learned about creativity from history into something modern (something along those lines). Basically it had to be something amazing, but there were no clear guidelines or directions. Luckily, me and Garageband were there to help.

We ended up creating this: a modern interpretation of William Blake's poems "The Lamb" and "The Tyger" from his famous Songs of Innocenece and of Experience. Jacob wrote an accompanying paper describing the combatting aesthetics of the poems that are demonstrated in this youtube vid:

Like I said before, I should NEVER rap. Even though listening to this is mildly embarrassing, I have to admit I am a mildly proud of it. After all, Jacob got 100 % on his project (like 200/200 points). I'm already helping my future husband ace his classes. being a good wife ain't no thang!

Well, I'll find out in 7 DAYS!!! (that's a week, people. fah-reeeking out.)

I laughed and laughed and maybe some more.
You rap together like a dream team.

Now you need to teach him the dance!
