Uncommon Valor

Top ten Verses of all time. 

True story…
Call me Thorburn, John A. Staff Sergeant, Marksman
Skilling, killing, illing
I’m able and willing
Kill a village elephant, rape and pillage your village
Illegitimate killers, US Military guerillas
This ain’t no real war, Vietnam shit
World War II, that’s a war, this is just a military conflict
Soothing, drug-abusing, Vietnamese women screwing
Sex, gambling and boozin’, all the shit is amusing
Bitches and guns, this is every man’s dream
I don’t want to go home, where I’m just a ordinary human being
Special OP, Huey chopper gun ship, run shit
Gook run when the mini-gun spit, won’t miss, kill shit
Spit four-thousand bullets a minute
Victor Charlie, hit trigger, hit it
I’m in it to win it, get it
The lieutenant hinted the villain, I’ve ended up killing
I did it, cripple, did it, pictures I painted is vivid, live it
A wizard with weapons, a secret mission we about to begin it
Government funded, behind enemy lines bullets is spraying
It’s heating up, a hundred degrees
The enemies the North-Vietnamese ?, bitch please
Ain’t no sweat, I’m told be at ease.
Until I see the pilot got hit, and we about to hit some trees
till the rotor broke, crash land, American man
Cambodia, right in the enemy hand
Take a swig of the whiskey to calm us
Them yellow men wearing black pajamas
They want to harm us
They all up on us
Bang, bang, bullet hit my chest, feel no pain
To my left, the captain caught a bullet right in his brain
Body parts flying, loss of limbs, explosions
Bad intentions, I see my best friend’s intestins
Pray to the one above, It’s raining and I’m covered in mud
I think I’m dying, I feel dizzy, I’m losing blood
I see my childhood, I’m back in the arms of my mother
I see my whole life, I see Christ, I see bright lights
I see Israelites, Muslims and Christians at peace, no fights
Blacks, Whites, Asians, people of all types
I must have died, then I woke up, suprised I’m alive
I’m in a hospital bed, they rescued me, I survived
I escaped the war, came back
But ain’t escape Agent Orange, two of my kids born handicapped
Spastic, quadriplegia, micro cephalic
Cerebral palsy, cortical blindness, name it they had it
My son died he ain’t live, but I still try to think positive
Cause in life, God take, God give 

I dare you to name a song out there that has a better verse then the 40 bars that RA the Rugged Man spits on “Uncommon Valor A Vietnam Story?? You won’t find it. This is a legendary hip hop classic and one of my favorites so I had to put it up here.

If you don’t have it in your collection, your a loser and don’t know fuck all about Rap. I’m kidding, but go download this shit right now before anyone finds out.

Ain’t no sweat, I’m told, “Be at ease”
Until I see the pilot got hit, and we ‘bout to hit some trees
Nail the road, it broke, crash land
American man in Cambodia, right in the enemy hand
Take a swig of the Whiskey to calm us
Them yellow men wearin’ black pajamas, they wanna harm us
They all up on us, bang, bang, bullet hit my chest, feel no pain
