On this episode of Eye on Veterans:

"The Marine Rapper"

He’s known as “The Marine Rapper” but Raymond Lott is far more than just a musician.  He’s a Marine combat vet, who founded his own record label Ninja Punch Music.  His goal is to highlight and promote the music of veterans and military artists in all genres.

In this interview, Eye on Veterans Host, Phil Briggs talks with him about life, his deployments, and his first viral single "Star-Spangled Banger".

Lott also shares songs from his latest compilation album "Sounds Like Freedom". A first of its kind album that was financed through a Kickstarter campaign, and produced virtually with artists contributing their parts online and without actually meeting face to face.
