Teacher turns ‘Bad and Boujee’ into an educational song about the Civil War


If we’ve learned one thing from Lin-Manuel Miranda, it’s that rapping makes American history fun. 

Rockdale County, Georgia, teacher David Yancey is taking this strategy to his eighth grade classroom with his rendition of “Mad and Losing,” a Civil War treatment of Migos’ “Bad and Boujee.”

Changing the refrain of the original hit to “my troops are mad and losing”, Yancey references Abraham Lincoln, the Emancipation Proclamation, General Grant and the Gettysburg Address all in his four-minute long rap. His students are clearly into it, dancing and singing along to the musical lesson.
