He hails from California, served five combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan with the U.S. Army’s 2nd Ranger Battalion, and spent five years as an overseas contractor for the U.S. government. But you probably know him best for his rap battles, dark military humor, that one zombie movie — and as the co-founder of the greatest coffee company in the world, Black Rifle Coffee Co.

The latest video installment in BRCC’s It’s Who We Are series offers a glimpse at the co-founder and vice president, Mat Best.
