Jersey teacher’s poetry lesson rap goes viral

An entertaining video of a young teacher from Jersey breaking into a freestyle rap session during a poetry lesson has gone viral.

24-year-old Christian Foley who teaches at Cardinal Pole School in Hackney, posted the clip online.

In the video, the class erupts in a frenzy of cheers as Mr Foley breaks into a quire-fire rap in English and Maths lessons.

I’m just rapping what my pen marks. I don’t like your tone, I’m doing this with a board-marker for a microphone!

– Christian Foley

Christian grew up in Jersey, where he discovered his talent for MCing with his grandfather as a teen.

The former Victoria College student has gone on to establish himself as one of the most versatile young artists on the contemporary poetry scene.

He is now a published poet, spoken word artist and hip hop MC and goes by the stage name: ‘Just Muz’.

He returned to the island earlier this summer and wowed an audience at the Opera House during his performance for the Jersey:Festival of Words.
