BAD RAP

Hip-hop culture today has transcended all racial and language boundaries. From the slums of France to nationally televised programs in Korea, rappers have emerged as legitimate pop-culture stars around the world. Hip-hop’s global movement is diverse, but the face of rap in America remains primarily black, brown, and white.

Which leads to this question: What about Asian-American rappers? Where are they, and can they succeed in that world? From pioneers like the Mountain Brothers, Jin, and Lyrics Born, to recent pop juggernauts the Far East Movement, the Asian-American presence in rap has always existed, but has never been documented or revealed in great detail…until now.
