Khmer Rap Boyz - Sexy feat KDEP

The Khmer Rap Boyz and KDEP are Khmer rappers from Cambodia. The song Sexy is about their affection for Khmer girls. This is an east-meets-west rap song where they have mixed traditional Khmer music with hip hop beats. I think its very cool and exciting that hip hop is starting to blow up in a country such as Cambodia and they have groups that "keep it real" and still stick to their Khmer roots instead of being a hollow imitation of mainstrean American rappers.

The music video of Sexy was directed by OCM. OCM is a famous music video director in the French Hip Hop industry. In the video you can see glimpses of daily life in Cambodia, which includes beautiful Khmer women and beautiful architecture and as well some social issues such as poverty. There's also a funny staggering drunk at the end of the video.
