Time for Summer School as today we get another lesson from “The Teacha“, Vybz Kartel. Titled “Do Di Maths (Wah Do You?)” and produced by Dunwell Productions, we hear Kartel drop lyrics about applying math when dealing with the ladies, acknowledging those who watch his every move, and cracking a few jokes along the way. It may or may not be a mystery as to how these songs keep popping up, but Vybz sure stays current and we’re not mad at that. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Reggae DJ and producer, Dennis AlCapone.

He spoke on children learning how to spell, speak foreign languages and show and tell along with students alerting teachers by saying “Teacher Teacher!“.
Hey Blogworld! I know that many of my readers are currently in school or graduated whether it be High School, Community College, or University, this entry today is just for you. Titled “Exam Thoughts” and created by Toni Blair, she showcases what many of us go through during an examination, from trying to remember what you barely studied, to arguing about the amount of questions given to you, to wishing you could get the hell out of the exam quickly. Pretty funny, always a good watch from Toni. Click on the video above and share your thoughts in the comments section.
