What A Difference Four Years Makes For Iraqi-American Rapper

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Today (Mar. 20) marks the fourth anniversary of the start of the Iraq War and the conflict has made a big dent in the life of one Iraqi-American rapper.

His name is “Timz,” and the 22-year-old rapper admits that before the war started, he had little thought of rapping professionally.

However, as the war has raged on, Timz admits his reaction to it has inspired lots of material, especially because of the assumptions he gets from people because of his ancestry.

You see, Timz was born in America but his family is Chaldean, a group of Catholics who hail from Iraq, and live mostly in Detroit, San Diego and Chicago.

Although Timz is against the war, he’s not anti-American, and finds it amazing that people criticize him for, in his words, “taking advantage of my rights.”

Later today (Mar. 20), Timz will be interviewed on the Al- Jazeera TV network and wants to let the Arab world know that, in his words, “Just because I’m anti-war, doesn’t mean I’m anti-American.”
