Sing-2-School is an award-winning company in Queens, New York, which puts out hip-hop albums that teach tots the basics of education, including states and capitals, phonics, and multiplication.
And for Sing-2-School producer Ronald Speed-Bey Jr., dropping a dope beat for kids comes with grown-up gratification.
Speed-Bey, who works along with rapper and fellow teacher Shawn Chandler, says, Its a little trickier to make hip-hop comfortable, catchy and upbeat for kids, but its a fun process to find something kids will enjoy and remember.
And unlike 50 Cent, Speed-Beys tunes can school you with substance, not just style.
He says, I didnt realize how big it was until we saw kids and parents react to it. Theres nothing like a parent saying theyre getting sick of our songs it means the kids are learning.
