    Since “Six Foot Seven Foot” is riddled with vulgarities, with N*gga, b*tch, and F*ck  words used throughout, and sexual innuendos and violence throughout, it has been deemed inappropriate by parents like Vanessa Guzman who appreciates a teacher thinking outside the box but feels the 8th grade educator went way too far to the left in this particular situation.  Guzman told WPTV,  ”This is crazy. They shouldn’t be giving this to kids in school.  I’m uncomfortable reading any of this. They shouldn’t be teaching this stuff in school for language arts. I mean, who in their right mind would give kids something like this?”

    Read an excerpt of Lil Wayne’s “Six Foot Seven Foot” lyrics here:

    Excuse my charisma, vodka with a spritzer

    swagger down pat, call my shit Patricia

    Young Money militia, and I am the commissioner

    you don’t want start Weezy, ’cause the F is for Finisher

    so misunderstood, but what’s a World without enigma?

    two b*tches at the same time, synchronized swimmers

    got the girl twisted ’cause she open when you twist her

    never met the b*tch, but I f*ck her like I missed her

    life is the b*tch, and death is her sister

    sleep is the cousin, what a f*ckin’ family picture

    you know father time, we all know mother nature

    it’s all in the family, but I am of no relation

    no matter who’s buying, I’m a celebration

    black and white diamonds, f*ck segregation

    f*ck that shit, my money up, you n*ggas just Honey Nut

    Young Money running shit and you n*ggas just runner-ups

    I don’t feel I done enough, so I’ma keep on doing this sh*t

    Lil Tunechi or Young Tunafish

    The Boynton Beach teacher, whose identity has not been publicly released, was reprimanded by the school district, with the school’s headmaster, Wayne Owens, releasing a public statement regarding the controversial teacher:

    The lesson was for students to learn to identify literary devices. The teacher had already introduced Edgar Allen Poe and Shakespeare. Students were having difficulty grasping the concepts of literary devices such as: pun, simile, metaphor, so the teacher used colloquial material. This material did not meet the school’s standards and was not approved. The teacher recognizes that it was totally inappropriate for a school assignment.

    School policy dictates that all teaching materials, which must be G-rated, be first approved by the district.

    The teacher in question, who has a clean record with the district, was handed down a three-day suspension for her misdeed.
