Haseen Kamal, 15, a pupil at the school, is an aspiring rapper and she was particularly inspired by the workshop.
She is applying for a place at Confetti, a specialist music college, for when she finishes school.
She said: “Our school doesn’t normally do this and people usually put me down because of my rapping but this session has inspired me, I just wanted to grab the microphone and rap.
“I come from a tough background but I can’t see why I can’t achieve what KC Da Rookee has.
“I love rapping about real things that affect us, and not about cars, girls and whatever. I write about the important things that are happening out there which people need to think about.
“I’m going to work hard to get as far as I can and I’m not backing down. I write lyrics every day.”Well, that’s just great, I think you’ll all agree.
When did ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ start to give the answer ‘Famous!’, rather than ‘astronaut’ or ‘train driver’ or ‘veterinarian’..?
Beverley Malpass, 29, who is the head of year 11, organised the event and she thinks these talks can only make a positive impact on her pupils.
She said: “I have a lot of students in my year group that are very much into music and rapping and I believe having a nice positive influence here will be good for them.”
“Rookee did grow up in Nottingham and came from a broken home so it’s not unrealistic for the pupils to think they can do the same thing and do something great.”Great! Because what Britain needs is more rappers!
Electricians, bricklayers, teachers & doctors..? Gosh, no! We can get by without them. Can't we?
