Tony K “Welcome to Baghdad” Showcases The Mess
Iraqi-born Hip-Hop artist out of Detroit named Tony
Tony K detailing the struggles of living in Iraq, not very long ago in Iraq a kid was executed for listening to Hip-Hop so for Tony K to be a voice for that region using a banned form of music is something rare.
Iraq is known to be a hotbed of violence one of the most dangerous regions in the world so much so that Iraq is often used as a metaphor for extreme violence such as “Chiraq” the Chicago adopted term used to reference the severity of the violence in the windy city, Tony K has crafted this song in that sense that “Welcome to Baghdad” echoes the violence in every treacherous neighborhood across the world from Chicago to Baghdad to Tony K’s current home of Detroit, MI.
Tony K showcases both his rapping and producing abilities on this remarkable track. “Welcome to Baghdad” … is the first of many songs set to be released in the upcoming months, following the release of notable mash-ups Tony K produced earlier this year the viral 2Pac Vs. Game of Thrones project and the Michael Jackson Hip-Hop mash-up album “The Hip Hop Michael” both just side projects for Tony K and just a glimpse into the world of a multi talented artist who unlike many who leave the old country–he is looking back and giving back as well.
