My Name Is (FM 2.22.3 salt pit rendition)

  1. In recent years the CIA has endorsed the use of sleep deprivation as a method for breaking down prisoners during long interrogations and were using rap songs, Eminem's among them, to keep them awake.

    The idea of someone somewhere in the world getting tortured by an Eminem song would be pretty funny if it weren't true. I took some samples from popular Iraqi artists and decided to repurpose the Eminem song yet again. The resulting mash-up that was actually quite listenable; a collision of cultures played through this lead loudspeaker.

    The US military has since revised it's field manual on interrogation practices (FM 2.22.3).
