John Brown rap! Finally!
Much props, respect and thanks to our friend and hip-hop education content maestro, Peter DiLalla, a.k.a. MC LaLa.

Manifest Destiny Rap
Here at Flocabulary, we love to hear new artists make educational hip-hop music. Take a look at this clip of MC DiLaLa and his academic rap, "Manifest Destiny." The song eloquently covers the history behind "Manifest Destiny" - how the United States grew from 13 colonies to the 50 states and several territories that exist today. The simple beat and catchy lyrics makes it easy for everyone to become more familiar with the history behind the Manifest Destiny. Check it out!
Lewis and Clark Rap
Props to Peter DiLalla (MC LaLa) for this edu-rap about Lewis and Clark, the great American explorers. Flocabulary was at the National Middle School Association in Indianapolis, IN when Peter approached us. He said he had written some educational hip-hop - when we heard it, we knew it had to end up on Hip-Hop Classroom! Keep up the fantastic work MC LaLa. We expect to hear (and vibe with) great things from you!
