Chinese HipHop

who knew china had a domestic hiphop scene?

courtesy of chinese americans doing that transpacific re-migration thing (back and forth between china and the u.s.).

hey, these guys are good! yo, check it: Red Star. my fave is the one that samples music from AMELIE and name-checks rappers from Fiddy to Eminem.

i was amused to hear that some of the guys in Red Star came to china to study (from america) but abandoned their studies to make music. (future Unreliable Narrator career trajectory…wasting his parents’ money in college in china? <chuckle>)
