Fighting Words


An article on how some soldiers are turning to freestyle rapping as an outlet for their frustrations. An excerpt:

Moments like those, when service members turn to rap to express, and perhaps relieve, fear, aggression, resentment and exhaustion, have become a common part of life during nearly two years of war in Iraq. "Rap is the one place," Specialist Drummond said, "where you can get out your aggravation - your anger at the people who outrank you, your frustration at the Iraqi people who just didn't understand what we were doing. You could get out everything."

--You should read the article--it's really interesting.
