I found this while working on my Posner Project research into good storytelling techniques. This is a soldier’s video, and I think a soldier rapping as well. Lots of cussing. It’s about the experience of member of the 82nd Airborn in the current conflict. If you look closely at the graffiti at the end, part of it says “Mosul, 2005”. There is a lot of information to be heard in this song, a lot of information about what it’s like to be a soldier today. Especially interesting/disturbing are the lines where the soldier describes having to clear houses and do crowd control.
