Do Some Math
(song/animation completed 11/25/2009)
Earlier this year some of the dancers in one of my calculus classes
suddenly started busting out the chorus of LL Cool J's "Mama Said
Knock You Out" (1990). Apparently their dance teacher had them perform
once to that song.
Now almost two decades since the original song release, Curly P and Mista
Whizz-ite ventured back into the studio to update this hip-hop classic
in promotion of the upcoming American Mathematics Competition, in which
Lusher High School will participate for the fourth year straight (Feb
Once again my colleagues at Lusher were very cooperative in lending their
vocal talents to this project. While the spontaneity of last year's "It's
Tricky (the A.M.C.)" song and animation made that project special,
the extra forethought of this year's endeavor will hopefully once again
make it a smash hit in the school community.
At least one must admit that our crazy dope lyrics are no less catchy
and no more nonsensical than the original song.
