Georgia School Is Investigating How Local Rappers Were Allowed to Perform an ‘Unauthorized and Intolerable’ Concert at a Middle School Dance
School officials in Georgia are investigating how a group of local rappers were allowed to perform an ‘unauthorized and intolerable’ concert at a middle school dance last Valentine’s Day.
Artists Guap Tarantino, Drugrixh Hect and Drugrixh Peso perform music DeKalb County School District said was not “age-appropriate” for its young audience at Salem Middle School, the Atlanta Constitution Journal reported. What’s more, the latter two rappers pose on social media with firearms.
Video from the school dance was posted to YouTube in February but only just captured the attention of school officials this week, according to the newspaper. The clip shows the group of performers rapping profanity-laced tunes with sexually explicit themes in front of the students at the event.
DeKalb County School District in a statement to the Journal said the concert was a “direct violation” of previous instruction from the school principal. “As such, DCSD will take immediate and strong disciplinary action against employees that organized or otherwise supported this unauthorized activity.”
Upon learning the news outlet didn’t pay for interviews, Guap Tarantino posted a video from the dance on Instagram with the caption explaining the school and newspaper were “Mad at Me For Making The Kids Happy… i Made dem Kids day and da county tryna do me durtyy.”
Take a look at video from the Valentine’s Day performance. It’s definitely not kid-appropriate.
