Meet NASA’s Dopest Engineer | OZY


Joshua Eferighe, OZY

Dajae Williams was in seventh-grade math and the topic of the day was the quadratic formula. The concept had been notoriously difficult, so her teacher assigned a remix to the accompanying jingle to be presented in class the next day. 

Williams, who tells me Soulja Boy was “literally popping at the time,” chose his No. 1 single, “Crank That,” to pair with the equation, tracking the “X equals negative B” lyrics over hard-hitting 808s and high-hats instead of … well, nursery rhyme.
