I wrote this rap for my AP Biology class in 8th grade, on 12/17/1996. It was part of a group project that we had to present before the class, and my agreement with my groupmates was that they would perform the rap if I did all the work writing it (so I could avoid public speaking). However, when the time came, they pressured me to perform the rap since I knew the beat far better than they did. My biology teacher videotaped the performance, but the battery died, forcing me to start over. I had been able to psych myself up for the first performance, but when I had to start over, I turned all red and stumbled over the words. It was humiliating.
