Phase 3 will be a limited edition package minted on the blockchain as a huge multi-media NFT collection. And finally, Phase 4 will be Vinyl and other physical collectibles!

What is the song about? Funny you should ask …

TEACHER is a song about the duality of living life as an MC and Public School teacher. GMS aka Mr. Sibirsky, delivers the audio on the 25th anniversary of his teaching career, in NYC public schools.

The beat for this song was actually made in Mr. Sibirsky’s middle school Music & Tech class as a demonstration of how to use Garage Band to make a Hip Hop beat. Although he had demonstrated making beats in front of his class before, GMS immediately knew this one was special. He took it home and wrote the whole song overnight in one shot.

After that it was just a matter of recording it, getting BAMBOO on the chorus and then shooting the video. For that, GMS enlisted videographer and photographer Jarret Robertson. Halfway through shooting the video the project was halted due to the pandemic. A year later they picked up where they left off and finished shooting. 

In the verses, GMS talks about coming up on the freestyle battle circuit in NYC, with his crew The PLAGUE, in the 90’s and 2000’s. He also references some all time greats from that era, including KRS ONE (the chorus is an ode to the classic BDP record, Come to the T’cha), BIG DADDY KANE, KOOL G RAP, BUSTA RHYMES, the NOTORIOUS B.I.G and TUPAC and reveals that he is a “High School drop out that became the teacher (whoa)”.

At the same time, Mr. Sibirsky teaches financial literacy and drops gems on how to live healthy, focus on goals and do what you love for a living. All while continuing to “kill a mic, then disappear without clues”.

“For most of my life, I have kept these two sides of myself – the music artist and the teacher – separate,” says the “but now with this song I am bringing those two worlds together!”
