Georgia parents were outraged when their child came to them with an unusual question about his homework. He had a worksheet about the a rap song that included the words “po pimp.”
“What is po pimp? Try to explain to a fourth
-grader what po pimp is,” Scott Tolleson told WSB-TV.
The lyrics stem from a 1996 rap hit ‘Po Pimp’ from Chicago group Do or Die. The song features rapper Twista and R&B singer Johnny P.
Tolleson says his son’s assignment was supposed to be about sentence structure, and the fourth graders were looking at one of Twista’s songs. When Tolleson looked up the lyrics, he was shocked.
“It was very upsetting to my family when we saw this. My wife was left in tears at the kitchen table,” Tolleson said.
