128 – Hip Hop Artist Mugzy Brady

Mugzy Brady in Action

Back in November, I had this Facebook Message in my inbox that made me curious. Mugzy Brady introduced himself as a rapper from Australia. He wondered if I would promote his music on Oscar Mike Radio.

I told him that Oscar Mike Radio was a military and Veterans podcast, but if he could send me some of tracks I would give it a listen.

Rap and Hip Hop is not my first love in music. However, I like the older stuff, so I gave his music a listen. Mugzy has a good message. The message in his music is based on being positive and pursing what you want in life. Also, there is no profanity in the lyrics of the tracks he sent me. Listening to the tracks, I became more and more interested in talking with him. We went back and forth and finally figured out a time that would work for the both us. Mugzy is thirteen hours ahead of me, but we made it work.

The conversation started off with Mugzy telling me about getting into hip hop. He had a difficult childhood, and rap allowed him to create and find a voice to make change in his life.

The key to his success and progress with his career is a willingness to be flexible and never quit. There have been challenges, ups and downs pursing being a hip – hop artist, but he has never quit.

So while talking about rap and hip-hop aren’t really military, this podcast reminded me of talking to Fitzy Mess ( https://oscarmikeradio.com/2017/06/30/episode-50-fitzy-mess-born-bar/ ) about using hip hop to inspire people. Click on the link below to go to his Facebook Page and find out more.

So my producer, Sinista1, hits me up and says check out this video. It is a Marine Rapper! I was like hmmm ok. I am a metal head. I like some rap, but I am in no way into the hiphop culture or all that. I watched this video (Fitzy Mess – YouTube Video – Welcome to the Infantry)  and wanted to talk with him.

Fitzy was a grunt in the Marine Corps and served overseas. He is a lifelong fan of rap and hiphop and started rapping while he was serving. Welcome to the Infantry hit YouTube a month ago and has over 50K views. There were several parts of this video that spoke to me even though I was not in the Infantry.

I didn’t feel like I was doing an interview. I thought I was back in the barracks talking to a Marine who wasn’t like me but still cool enough to talk to me about it. Even  though we served in different times and had different jobs, it was two dudes talking having a good time.

When Fitzy talked about Veterans having something the enjoy doing and are passionate about, I got it. Sometimes we as Veterans can get discouraged and frustrated with civilian life. We got to find that one thing to keep us in the game.

Fitz also talked about PTSD and Veteran suicide. This is an issue that troubles us both. We are tired of going to funerals.

With membership declining in the VFW and American Legion, maybe we need to focus more on veterans who network and support each other like Fitzy Mess is doing. All I know is a hardcore metal head loved what is brother did. You will too. Look for his next release to hit this year on or around the Marine Corps Birthday. Semper Fi Brother.
