Former Marine Yung Sip met fellow rappers 3-Thirds, 7-K and Noyz when they were all deployed to Iraq two years ago, and the four eventually formed the rap group called SoutuNoyz pronounced Southern Noise.
Says Sip: When we were over in Iraq, we all lost people close to us. Good men with families who didnt get to have the careers they wanted.
He says it was these losses and Hurricane Katrina that sparked a new song called Real Life, that has lyrics like, Fþþþ George Bush, I want my homies back/Ill go to war with anyone if they can give your boy dat/ Then to top it all off when Katrina popped off/ I was in the military with no days off.
Although the songs have a critical message, 3-Thirds doesnt want people to think the group is anti-military. He says they are all very proud to have served their country, but would just like to see changes in the government.
