CALHOUN CITY, Miss. (WTVA)-- A group of parents is upset at what their children were exposed to during a recent school assembly at Calhoun City High School.
A local rapper known as Miami Mike spoke to the kids Wednesday, but parents say he didn't leave a positive impression.
"On Wednesday, they had an assembly at the high school. And I'm being told that it even consisted of the fifth graders. And he was talking about sex in jail and rape," said Becky Kellum of Vardaman.
Becky says she and other parents found out about the assembly through their kids.
"What upset me was when my oldest daughter, who is in 12th grade, came home and told me that there was some pretty racy stuff being talked about at the assembly. When I asked my oldest son what he got out of it, he said when you go to jail you may be rich," replied Gigi Foster of Calhoun City.
According to his website, Miami Mike is a native of Batesville and has collaborated with other big name rap artists.
The parents say the rapper and his entourage gave away compact discs containing suggestive and inappropriate language.
"The CD is trash. It's vulgar. Every word in it is vulgar. We want to know where these CDs came from," said Kellum.
We tried putting those questions to school administrators at the high school and the superintendent's office in Pittsboro, but we did not get a response.
Foster says she and another parent met with high school principal Mike Ray who apologized for the assembly.
"He was sorry that he didn't do a background check. He took the word of an employee that this man was okay and he trusted his employee to know," she said.
Foster said she did not know the name of the employee.
One of the parents says she will forward the music to the Mississippi Department of Education in Jackson.
