"Iraq" is destined to be a true rallying cry during these difficult political times. TIMZ's background allows him to give a unique perspective of the war. "My parents are from Iraq but I was born in the United States. I feel like I'm able to connect to both sides of this war a little more than the average person. That's why I wrote the song the way I did; the first verse is written from the perspective of an Iraqi while the second verse is written from the perspective of an American. The third verse is a history lesson!"
"Dear Mr. George Bush," TIMZ raps. "Why do you insist to make a fool of us? For over 200 years... we stood for what's good, now we despised by our peers; And what do you...but add fuel to the fire and send in more troops. Oh the troops God save the troops; it wasn't their war their lies their fault. America the beautiful what did they do to you, they used you its so indisputable!"
On his fiery and autobiographical debut CD, TIMZ—aka Tommy Hanna, an American born rapper of Chaldean and Iraqi descent--gets right up in our faces, mixing explosive, Middle Eastern tinged beats with incendiary rhymes in an effort to shatter those ugly stereotypes that have plagued people who look like him since 9/11 and the start of the Iraq war.
Make no mistake, the title of TIMZ powerful, outspoken and heavy grooving 14- track collection—a nominee for Best Hip-Hop Album at the 2006 San Diego Annual Music Awards—says it all: the San Diego born and bred artist is Open For Business.
"Iraq" was directed by Ron Najor at TheBuzzLA.com
