Miami, FL (March 7, 2017) -- Respected Miami rapper Oscar Urbina eloquently dismantles the learning standards for students in his new song, “Teacher Chronicles,” the first single from his forthcoming mixtape, Molly Pitcher 2 Darkness. The track premieres on Rapzilla Tuesday.

To better engage and prepare students, Urbina suggests that curriculum incorporate life skills that address bullying, developing integrity, and religion. He raps, “And nowadays all these students are so hyper / It’s really hard for them to sit still / They care more about their likes on social media / While their grades take way more L’s than Meek Mill.”

Urbina has a wealth of insight on the subject. In addition to being an MC, he’s an eighth-grade teacher at Northwest Christian Academy in Opa-locka in Miami-Dade County. His experiences as both a student and instructor inspired the song. "While being educated in school, I realized I wanted to educate in schools. Now, I realize it's the schools that need education," he explains. A music video was filmed in Urbina’s classroom and will be released in coming weeks.

MP2 Darkness is a follow up to Molly Pitcher released in July 2016. The mixtape series is influenced by the story of Mary Ludwig, a folklore heroine who brought soldiers pitchers of water to combat heat exhaustion during the American Revolution’s Battle of Monmouth. Oscar strives to use his music to make a similar impact on its listeners.
