A father and his daughter rewrote a popular hip hop song “Rake It Up” by Yo Gotti featuring Nicki Minaj and it quickly became a new anthem.
Joel Carter and Dream Carter both liked this song but its lyrics aren’t appropriate for little kids. So, father decided to rewrite the song, make it more positive and turn it into school anthem. As a result, the song quickly went viral.
Their remix is about working hard, achieving your goals and “raking up” A’s in school. Carter’s daughter and her friends dance in a video, which has already been viewed almost 5 million times on Facebook. They said the response is very positive. Teachers, students and parents really love it. And Nicki Minaj has shared it as well.
Joel works in educations and says that his daughter is good at dancing and singing. Besides, she’s an A student and she loves going to school. She can’t wait to see her old friends and new teachers. They hope the song will help inspire students to pursue academic excellence.
The dad hopes teachers will get inspired as well, as they can change the world and help children go to school.
