Educator Claps Back At Jake Paul's Song Dissing Teachers With An Epic Rap Of His Own

A Texas teacher created an epic rap-back after Jake Paul, younger brother of the controversial YouTube star Logan Paul, released a music video dissing teachers. Sigh.


Matt Preston, a teacher at Hawley ISD in Texas, simply wasn't having Paul's 4-minute rant about how teachers are useless and haven't taught him anything. Preston and his fellow faculty decided to send Paul a message about the value of teachers and why it's important to stay in school.

"A few bad apples don't make the grove bad. Some of these kids see me more than their own dad" is but one line in a string of wit that only a teacher could produce.

"My students know I got their back," Preston's chorus, and main message, reads. "So don't be dissing me, just 'cause your teacher was whack."

Paul's video called "My Teachers,'' released on May 11, is below. In it, the 21-year-old internet personality raps about his failures in math, and how his "teachers never taught him" how to succeed in life.

Here are the lyrics, but be forewarned, they're as eyeroll-inducing as you'd expect:

"[Intro - Jake Paul]

Yo. JP
Look, I'm a millionaire, but I ain't used nothin' in my life that my teachers taught me

[Chorus - Jake Paul]
My teachers never taught me that! (My teachers never taught me that!)
How to deal with this or that!
How to make my [?]!
How to get a DM back
How to buy a Lambo cash!

[Verse 1 - Jake Paul]
My teachers never taught me that! (Yo!)
My teachers never liked me one bit!
They said I would amount to be shit!
They thought I was just another misfit!
I had to make like a banana split!
Now, Jakey in a mansion
Got 8 builders for expansion!
All these diamonds on my dances
Mrs. Clause just see me flashin'!
My Lambo hit the gas
All these pre-essays I'm passin'!
I went to Calabasas
I feel like Kim Kardashian!

[Chorus - Jake Paul]
My teachers never taught me that! (My teachers never taught me that)
How to deal with this or that!
How to make my [?]!
How to get a DM back
How to buy a Lambo cash!

[Verse 2 - Sunny Malouf]
My teachers said I needed to get up on my grades
I need to get my Bs and [?] to my As!
I walk in the class, I got Supreme on my [?]
You always tryna hate but you got nothin' to say!
I'm almost at the top, I'm the young Lebron James!
I'm not the same in my own brain
I'm in a different lane!
It's yo girl Sunny and call me Mrs. Stay-On-Top!
I'm on this [?], killin' the game, and this a [?]!

[Chorus - Jake Paul]
My teachers never taught me that! (My teachers never taught me that)
How to deal with this or that!
How to make my [?]!
How to get a DM back
How to buy a Lambo cash!

[Verse 3 - Anthony Trujillo]

Neva' taught me how to flow
And I be on the beats!
Skippin' class all day
There be Fs all on my sheet!
Detentions everyday
Got me kicked off the team!
The teachers never cared about my California Dream!
I was nothin'
A nerd just like [?]!
My teacher's [?]
Talkin' shit 'cause I'm nothin'!
Now I'm somethin'
Speaker's bumpin'
Crowd jumpin'
Got my wrist flooded
Girls lovin' [?]!

[Chorus - Jake Paul]
(Damn!)
My teachers never taught me that! (My teachers never taught me that)
How to deal with this or that!
How to make my [?]!
How to get a DM back
How to buy a Lambo cash!"

Stay in school, kids.
