Do you like rap? Do you like to learn? Well gather round kiddos, as we got a rap that is not only packed with sick rhymes, but is also a great history lesson about Missoula.

For example, according to Wikipedia

Missoula never "boomed" as many western Montana towns did as a consequence of the gold rush, though the town did grow rapidly, and by 1872 the town had 66 new buildings. Higgins and Worden established the town's first stores and banks, but by 1876 the pair faced its largest competition and rivalry from Eddy, Hammond and company, who established the Missoula Mercantile Company.

Things are just much easier to remember when you put them to song.
