SALFORD HIP HOP TROOPS SALUTE
 

Star date: 21st November 2010 

MISFITS HELP OUR HEROES

`We're at war
 What are we fighting for?
 Where's the law?'

Misfit Music, the top unsigned Salford hip hop outfit more known for wild tracks like `Tear The Roof Off' and `Out Of Space', have produced a pensive end of year number to raise awareness for Brit troops out fighting and dying in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The track, called Help Our Heroes, aims to raise money for support our soldiers and is getting huge support from both the families of soldiers and the public…

Full story here…


"Dedicated to our heroes currently fighting and those who have sadly passed away", Misfit Music's Help Our Heroes track both supports the troops and questions why they are still in Iraq and Afghanistan

To a military drum beat and the sad sound of a female loved one singing `When you come home…I'll never cry again', the Misfits burst in with the rap…

`We're at war…What are we fighting for?
Where's the law? To stop the fighting 'cause
Do we pause? And let this keep on happening
So let's applaud
Our troops on the field that are battling…

Now bring the troops back home…'

"The reason behind Misfit Music producing this track and deciding to push it, is due to members of the group currently having friends and family situated in Iraq and Afghanistan" says Misfit Music's Briggzy "The aim of the track is to build awareness of how real their situation is. Any money raised is better than no money at all.

"The track has been passed onto families of those currently at war with glowing feedback being received" he adds "The amount of support received back from the song has been overwhelming with people demanding that the track be released."

Help For Heroes will be promoted on radio stations across the UK as well as on a music video to be aired on Sky TV's Channel Aka. There's a rough cut of the track and video already up on YouTube which has already had 1,500 hits in a week, but the full track will be on sale next moth on ITunes, with all proceeds going to www.supportoursoldiers.co.uk
