Jedi Mind Tricks - Rugged Man Vinnie Paz

The Rugged Man and Vinnie Paz of the hip-hop group Jedi Mind Tricks have some excellent conscious tracks. The first video called "Uncommon Valor: A Vietnam Story" is the true life story of Rugged Man's father, Staff Sgt. John A. Thorburn, a vietnam veteran affected by Agent Orange. Rugged Man's brother Maxx was born handicapped and blind, eventually dying at age 10. His sister Dee Ann was born without the ability to walk or speak and died in 2007 at age 27. The other videos are from Vinnie Paz who has some hard-hitting lyrics and beats both rap fans and conspiracy theorists will appreciate.

R.A. is a beast, saw him live once and it was crazy! He doesn't do many tracks like uncommon valor anymore and its a bummer... Great story telling and interesting how he took perspective from that horrible war and aftermath that his father had to go through. Good post tho man, i almost forgot about both those and Jedi Mind's track
