Cataracts - A science-y cover of Macklemore’s “Cadillacs” from everyone’s favorite rapping science teacher, Tom McFadden.
If you haven’t heard of Tom, he’s a teacher at The Nueva School in the Bay Area. His students don’t just learn science, they rap it, and they rap it well. Here’s some of their previous hits:
- That’s Metal (“Gas Pedal” cover)
- Watson and Crick vs. Rosalind Franklin rap battle
- All the Salamanders (“Drank” and “All the Single Ladies” cover)
- Alfred Wegener and continental drift
- Black plague vs. Yellow Fever (“Black and Yellow” by Wiz Khalifa)
And Tom’s not just a producer, he’s got rhymes of his own. Don’t miss his first hit, a 50 Cent/Jay-Z-inspired ode to the TCA (Krebs) Cycle: Oxidate it or Love It/Electron to the Next One
