One Teacher, His Students and Hip Hop

22 Jun

A day in a classroom with a Teachers and Students who discuss Old School Hip Hop n R&B

As a teacher, I am always looking for ways to connect and / or relate to my students. There are a few topics that almost always break generation gaps. In my opinion, the two topics are sports and music. Ask 100 students to talk about sports and you will get dozens upon dozens of different answers. The replies will range from a favorite player to a preferred position on a team. However, a large percentage of students will reply that they don’t like sports. Ask 100 students if they like music and you will get 99 or 100 positive replies.

Today, I stumbled upon an awesome website to use in my classroom. On http://nocursingmusic.com, you will find exactly what you would expect on a website titled “No Cursing Music.” DJ Doc provides visitors to his website over 40 hours of mixed old school Rap, Hip Hop and R&B music. One hundred percent of the tracts are without any cursing or profanity. From my online searches, this is the only website where you can listen to this many tracks for free. Visitors are able to select tracks from three options. DJ Doc has carefully uploaded 36 one hour tracks and 4 half hour mixes.

There are countless current Rap, Hip Hop and R&B artists saying that these “Old School” artists provided them inspiration. As a teacher, I can play one of these clips and then introduce the “Old School” tracks. With a blessing from current artists, these tracks will be heard with open ears. As a teacher, I’m on a limited budget. There is not any other place online to listen to these tracks with no charge. As a parent, this website has me excited to share my roots with my daughter.

You seriously won’t ever go back to Youtube after you stop by No Cursing Music. This is the only website to offer fans zero talking and zero profanity recordings for Rap, Hip Hop and R&B. This website isn’t only teacher friendly but it is parent friendly. You can listen to these tracks with your children. There is nothing more powerful than providing your children different experiences as they develop and grow.

The final reason that I fell in love with No Cursing Music and DJ Doc is that I can jump on the website at anytime. Due to the nature of DJ Doc’s website, is that it is “always on.” Visitors can use their smart phones, laptops, desktops, iPhones, Kindles or any other device that can access the Internet. You can jump on from home, at work or any place with WiFi access. DJ Doc took the all of the cursing out of the tracks. Thus, the website will not be blocked even by the strictest Internet filters. Please don’t take my word for how awesome No Cursing Music is! Head on over to http://nocursingmusic.com right now!
