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.
