His name is Brown Boy and hes the rapper behind the current chart-topping hit Superman.
But before he started multiplying a fortune from record sales he taught multiplication and division to junior high school students.
Brown Boy whose real name is Dario Perez says that although teaching math and rapping are very different professions, he still gets the teaching bug once in a while.
Says Brown Boy: I like to educate my fans, especially when promiscuously dressed, young girls come up to me at a show trying to act older. I tell them they dont need to talk, look, or act like that. Thats when the teacher in me comes out.
But the teacher behavior doesnt follow Perez everywhere, and he insists he doesnt shush fans or slap rulers on desks during his shows.
In his words, The classroom and the rap world are two different environments. In one, you behave, in the other, you can get a little wild.
