As I explore my Latin side, here is a nice little ditty to bring you a little closer to my heart. The Calimex/Tex-Mex love is definitely shown in this video. Chout Out Chingo & MoCo. Respectively cancunshawty & @ieatmocos on social media.



The ‘Juicy’ Standardized Test: How Well Do You Know Biggie’s Anthem 20 Years Later?

This is the “Juicy” Standardized Test. This is not the Fill in the Blank “Juicy” quiz, or the True/False “Juicy” quiz, or the Word Bank Matching “Juicy” Quiz. You won’t be able to weasel your way through it by simply connecting words in the questions that rhyme with words in the responses. This is an adaptation of several statewide exams (New York and Texas, mostly), designed to replicate the rigor of those tests by asserting tiered, higher-order questioning.

It’s 10 questions long. And every question is rooted in “Juicy”-dom. If you’re not very familiar with the song, don’t even bother. Because this is the nerdiest rap thing.

Scroll to the end to see the answer key.

And don’t sit there trying to answer the questions with a browser window opened to a “Juicy” lyrics page. Don’t be a dolt.

Good luck. I hope that you do not die here today.
