Call me cynical, but this middle school student’s fan letter is proof our schools are failing. As part of a school assignment where all the kids in a class at North Carolina’s Chestnut Grove Middle School had to send a letter to someone they admired. Who did young Graceson pick? A$AP Rocky. And he outlined all the rapper’s accomplishments in the letter:
Hi I am Graceson Reeves I am probably your number one fan. I am writing this fan letter for a grade. Were doing a project at CGMS also because I love you’r music. I live in a small town called King in NC witch is probably a place were you will never visit. So lets talk about me.
My name is Graceson Scott Reeves. I love writting and listening to music. My favorite song in the world is wild for the night. I really wish you would send me your CD because I have looked for it but I cant find it. So that would be greatly apprisheated.
I know your song F!@#$%& Problems went gold. I know your 25 years old. I know you use to move a lot. I also know you use to sell drugs. I know your labels are RCA Sony and Polo Grounds. I also know you were arested for beating a man in a clothing store.
The letter didn’t make it to A$AP, but it did find its way into the hands of a vigilant postal worker who posted the letter on Instagram with the caption, “Got some mail for @asvpxrocky at the Mishka office from a middle schooler. I can ignore most of the grammatical errors but dude didn’t even put the $ on the envelope.”
No, @raythedestroyer, we should not ignore these egregious grammar and spelling errors, never mind the fact that A$AP probably isn’t the best role model. Little Graceson needs to stop listening to this too-grown music and focus on his schooling.
