MC Hotdog - 韩流来袭 (Korean Wave Invasion)

MC Hotdog

韩流来袭, or the Korean Wave Invasion is the first major single from Taiwanese rapper MC Hotdog. In this song, MC Hotdog ridicules the music from the Taiwanese music industry because of how it glamorizes Korean pop idols and love songs. There's a lot of profanity and vulgar language used in this song especially in the chorus where he specifically calls out Korean pop bands Clon and H.O.T. and female singers Yuki, Ah Mei, and Coco Lee. The instrumental of this song uses a very popularized "chinky theme". I don't know exactly what the name of it is, but I'm sure you all heard it before. The Korean Wave Invasion can be found in MC Hotdog's debut EP album Dog released in 2001.

Chino Chill - Freestyle

This video created quite a bit of controversy in waaaaaaaay back in December 30, 2008. I don't know if this video is controversial because of his ethnicity, because seems desperate for money or because he said he is a 2-time felon. He also said that Jin, Southstar and Ice-T co-signed him. Maybe its a combination all four. The rapper in the video goes by the name Chino Chill. He is from Fayetteville, North Carolina. Chino Chill said in the video that he just lost his job and he has only $60 left in his pocket and wants to rap for money. He is looking to sign a deal and wants $5000 in advance. My guess is that this rapper is Chinese because he goes by the name Chino Chill.

As for my take on Chino Chill's rapping ability: he's not a bad at all, but at the same time he's not the best I have heard. Will he get signed? Who knows? But he does seem too desperate though. I'll post an update if he does get a deal. Anyways.... what are your thoughts on Chino Chill? Check the video below.

Singaporean Gangster Girl Video Bashing

Ha ha ha! This video is funny!!

This video is from the Singaporean television series Crimewatch which is about crime prevention. This episode is about the out-of-control teenagers of Singapore. The synopsis of the video is that some guy received a video on his cell phone of "gangster girls" beating up another girl and then he reports to the police. He tells the police who sent it to him and eventually the police track down the gangster girls and the victim of the video. Out of some strange twist of fate and to my surprise, we learn that one of the gangster girls, "Kelly" who took part in the beating and the spreading of the video is the older sister of the victim, "Emily". Wtf?

The acting in this video is horrible and the "gangster girls" don't even look gangster at all, well maybe with the exception of the "Pamela" girl who has that mean scowl on her face throughout the whole video. Anyways enjoy this one folks..............

MC Ryuu - Chinkanometry

MC Ryuu

MC Ryuu is a Vietnamese rapper from Chicago, Illinois. He is well-known for his rap song One Love One Life with MC Epikz.

Chinkanometry is a really funny by MC Ryuu. It is based on stereotype that Asians are very good at math. In the song, MC Ryuu brings up hilarious scenarios that a typical Asian would face and then he asks you a mathematical question based on the scenario. I think its a very brilliant song. I found the lyrics of Chinkanometry for anyone who wants to read it (or for any of you math nerds that want to do the calculations):

Jackie Chain (Half-Korean Half-White Rapper) - Rollin feat Jhi Ali

Jackie Chain - Fear the Future

Jackie Chain aka "Mr. VIP" is a half white and half Korean rapper from Huntsville, Alabama. He has been rapping since the 5th grade. Jackie Chain had a rough childhood growing up. His mother left him when he was 2 years old and his father kicked him out of the house at age 16. He then hustled on the streets to get by which landed him in prison. Prison was where he started to take his rapping seriously and where he got the name "Jackie Chain". The story goes that the inmates called him "Jackie Chan" but because of their southern drawl it sounded like "Jackie Chain" and he kept that as his rapping name ever since. Jackie Chain has two mixtapes out: Fear the Future and Who Am I both released in 2008.

Rollin is one of Jackie Chain's biggest hits so far. The term "rollin" is a slang for being under the influence of the drug ecstasy. The instrumental of Rollin uses the sample of Robert Mile's Children. Gucci Mane on the chorus saying "Rollin, rollin, rollin, we ain't slept in weeks". Here's a "bootleg video" of Jackie Chain and Jhi Ali performing Rollin live at The Apex (accompanied with psychedelic effects LOL). I have to admit, this song is catchy.

Alvin Lau - Asia-America, Where Have You Gone?

Alvin Lau - Asia-America, Where Have You Gone?

I am a bit late on this but.....Happy 2009!! Let's start this year off with wake-up call. What you are about to see is not hip-hop; it is called spoken word. Spoken word poetry is a form of rap that that is similar to rap in hip hop but one of the major differences is that spoken word does not feature any instrumental beats nor drum beats at all.

Alvin Lau is a spoken word poet from Chicago, Illinois. He is of Chinese ancestry and the son of immigrant parents. He has placed 7th place at the Individual World Poetry Slam and 6th place at the National Poetry Slam when he was 20 years old. He is also Amnesty International's "Poet of Conscience". He is very active in the poetry slam scene and also an activist for social justice.

Asia-America, Where Have You Gone? was sent to me by one of my readers. This is a recorded live performance in 2006, where Alvin Lau was competing in the National Poetry Slam. This poem is about Alvin searching for his own Asian culture which is lost in America's melting pot. Many of you Asian-Americans will relate to this poem. Go check it out!
