A Journey From Home To War Told Through Rap

“Goodbye 09” is the story of rapper/soldier M.I.L.O. and his journey from Denmark to the war in Afghanistan:

The guy’s flow on this song is great, but the translation doesn’t flow at all. For that reason, foreign music has always fascinated me, especially rap.

I really like the video too… very artistic. It does a great job of telling the story.

  • It appears that his entire album is available for free on the Dutch website bandbase – HERE

I skipped through a bunch of the tracks.  The album has a very Eminem-esque feeling to it, from the beats to the structure of the rhymes. The album appears to even follow a similar formula to American rappers of having some songs for the ladies to dance to, and some harder tracks made for chillin. I’m not sure how popular this guy is in Denmark, but even though I don’t understand a word he’s saying, he seems very talented.

  1. Wow, that was fantastic!

  2. Reminds me of Uncommon Valor: A Vietnam Story by Jedi Mind Tricks although pretty different in the sentiment.

      Yea that song is great. I should post about it sometime.

  3. Pretty fucking intense. On my Pandora I created a station for ‘Die Antwoord’ (Google it), and it plays a ton of foreign hip-hop. There are some talented people beyond our shores…
