Michigan High School Senior Samuel ‘Blowfish’ Blyveis Gives Rousing Graduation Speech Rap [VIDEO]
The crowd at the graduation ceremonies at St. Joseph High School in Michigan was treated to a graduation speech from senior Samuel ‘Blowfish’ Blyveis. He delivers a speech called ‘That’s How You Get Through High School, Kid” in a rousing rap style.
The rap brought the graduating class and their families to their feet in the small Southwest Michigan community. The video of the speech has gone viral after being picked up by news outlets including the Huffington Post.
Blyveis took the crowd at Dickinson Stadium through each of the four years of high school and gave advice tailored for each grade level.
(Note for parents-there is an incidental piece of off color language at the very end of the video.)
