Lil Mike and Funny Bone have recently appeared on America’s Got Talent.  The brother rappers from Oklahoma City surprised the panel and earned a trip to Las Vegas.  From the Pawnee and Choctaw tribes, the two have been rapping for several years.

According to the 2009 documentary about the two, they grew up in a broken and abusive home.  “I ran with the wrong crowd,” Mike (real name: Jesus) admits.  ”A lot of time in the streets.  Getting in fights because that is all I knew.  I saw my dad and mom fighting and I was getting beat down, so that is what I was doin’ in school.  Fightin’ all the time.  The elementary schools be kickin me out and stuff.”

Keep watching America’s Got Talent to see how far the two can make it!
