MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Shelby County Schools is investigating a video of a Memphis rapper playing dice inside a building he claims is Hamilton High School.

BlocBoy JB recorded a Facebook Live video titled "Live @ Hamilton" inside what appears to be a school. In the video, he and several other men are gambling on a game of dice.

After we contacted the school district, the post was removed.

It's unclear if the video indeed happened at Hamilton High as the post claimed; however, SCS confirmed the district is looking into the video.

"The District is investigating the circumstances surrounding this video to understand the facts. The illegal activity seen in the video violates state law and school policy and will not be tolerated."

"It doesn't surprise me at all, because you know, it was going on when I was in school," a Hamilton alumni who wanted to remain anonymous said. "Teachers and administrators don't need to involve themselves with kids, especially when they're supposed to be teaching."

The man said he thinks school administrators should be held accountable and make sure the school is focused on learning.
