Teacher Combines Hip Hop & History With "Straight Outta Compton"/'Oregon Trail' Mash-Up (VIDEO)
(AllHipHop News) "You are now about to witness the strength of trail knowledge," announces Justin Ashley in his new video titled "Straight Intta Oregon."
The 8th grade Social Studies teacher is attempting to make history more interesting by combining N.W.A.'s classic song "Straight Outta Compton" with the educational video game The Oregon Trail.
"Straight Outta Compton" helped catapult N.W.A into eventual Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductees.
In addition, the California group's album of the same name will be included in the Grammy Hall Of Fame class of 2017.
MECC's The Oregon Trail is also a historic creation.
The computer game based on 19th-century pioneer life was inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame earlier this year.
Ashley worked with his Community House Middle School students as well as North Carolina rapper Yung Macnificent to create the rap and visuals for "Straight Intta Oregon."
Five years ago, the educator's Bill of Rights themed clip “Rights Rights Baby" went viral and has collected over 135,000 views on YouTube.
