Check out my homies in Hong Kong 香港 24 Herbs. Last time I was in HK partying with them they took me all over and these dudes got serious pull in that city. AND their hats are EVERYWHERE, see here…
holler @ me for more info on 24 herbs!! (I got pictures lol)
I still remember hiphop.cn parties at Tango every Thursday back in 08-09…whenever this song came on (which it always did)… the whole house would go nuts.
Everybody would hit the dance floor to bounce around and no-engrish-speaking cats all of a sudden spoke fluent Wu-Tang.
Let’s stop performing.
Let’s stop pretending.
Let’s be… UNCOOL.
THE UNCOOL is a free 10-track promotional mixtape, streaming and for download at http://grandmaster.bandcamp.
The Special Edition adds 3 full new songs and is accompanied by curated photographs and a commentary and lyrics book, also at http://grandmaster.bandcamp.
All profits go to the Red Thread Movement (www.redthreadmovement.org), a project of 501(c)3 nonprofit organization Eternal Threads dedicated to fighting illegal sex trafficking in Nepal.
Just a lil shout out to to the “King of the Beijing Freestyle”: Nasty Ray aka BlackSound aka Lil Ray.

He hasn’t updated in a while but there are some good links and references on their if you want to find info on Beijing hip hop.
Shout out to 隐藏！thats my family.
Onra came to Beijing once and we partied in 798 all night, he was a sick producer, but his attitude was super French. I remember they wouldn’t let my crew of hip hop heads in with our yan jing 啤酒 bottles lol…
Anyway here is a song of his that I think is prettttty sick and its got some good Chinese samples. Asian Dilla-ish

Ya boy Grandmaster Chu and his Model Minority crew are BACK with a new mixtape and video premiere. I checked out the tracks and once again, it’s high quality and a few tracks have already jumped into my playlist rotation. Check it out!
On THE TIGER SONS, emcees D-One, Grand Master Chu, and Inglish continue to speak about the lives of young, modern, Asian-Americans with their signature wordplay. Humorous, self-deprecating, and thoughtful, they address a range of subjects from growing up in Asian-American households (Battle Hymn of the Tiger Sons), online romance (Twitter Girl), historical struggles against racism (Vincent Chin.), and drop bilingual party tracks like Xian Kan Kan Wo (a Mandarin cover of Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now”) and Ooh It’s Just Genetic, Girl.
The lead single from THE TIGER SONS, Invisible People (Where’d You Go?), and its accompanying music video, are dedicated to those people whose voices and stories have been lost or ignored. With a music video shot in San Francisco, directed by Angela Yu, the song sees the three rappers speaking out against injustice in the classroom, courtroom, and media.
THE TIGER SONS Tape is available for free download & streaming at http://grandmaster.bandcamp.com/album/the-tiger-sons
