50 Cent praises London school teacher for viral freestyle rap video

Christian Foley - aka Just Muz - uses rap as a teaching technique at his Hackney school

50 Cent has praised an east London school teacher for his “flow” after a video of the amateur rapper spitting bars in class went viral.

Christian Foley, who goes by the rap name Just Muz and works at Cardinal Pole Catholic School in Hackney, features in a video in which he uses rap lyrics as a teaching technique in the classroom.

50 Cent later posted the clip to Facebook, writing: “He actually got some flow”.

Reacting to the news, Foley said that he was “surprised” by 50 Cent’s post. “What’s 50 Cent doing with his ear on the youth poetry scene of east London? How did he stumble on this?”, he said.

“I’m amused by the compliment, and its semi-patronising tone,” Foley added. “But yeah my main job is to help my students, and to focus on them, if 50′s praise creates opportunities for me, and therefore them, mission accomplished, if not – then it was just a cool Tuesday, and back to work.”
