Game Says ‘School is Govt. Plot to Keep Track of Us’
Compton rapper the Game is slamming the education system, proclaiming that after a certain grade, school is pretty much useless. His colorful comments came via Twitter. “After you learned how to read & do addition, what else did we need school for that we use in everyday life as an adult?” he pondered. “I think school was a government’s plot to keep track of us & program our lives. Up at 7, out at 3PM five days a week.”
The doting dad recognized the break that schooling can give a parent. ” … Them 2 dudes is animals!” he continued in regards to his own two sons. “I get it, school is a babysitter. Martin Luther King said: ‘The reason we in school 13 yrs is because, that’s how long it take to DESTROY a child’s mind.”
Despite his disdain towards education, Game quickly back peddled sending a message to school-aged children. But kids, STAY IN SCHOOL,” he wrote. “We all gotta do it. I’m from Compton so maybe it was just our school system that ain’t really do shit for us. My teachers wore khaki suits n ere’thang.”
Ironically Game had previously signed on to perform at a school in New Zealand last year but was turned down due to his explicit lyrics. It’s probably safe to say that he won’t be appearing at any schools anytime soon. His fourth album ‘The R.E.D. Album,’ which he’s been working on with Dr. Dre, drops this year.
