Drunken Tiger - Feel gHood Musik: The 8th Wonder / Monster

Drunken Tiger - Feel gHood Musik: The 8th Wonder

Drunken Tiger, has just released their 8th album entitled Feel gHood Musik: The 8th Wonder today. This time, the 8th album is a solo effort from Tiger JK since DJ Shine has left the group to pursue his own solo rap career. The album has 27 tracks on two compact discs. The concept of Feel gHood Musik: The 8th Wonder is that the two discs have very different sounds. The first CD, the "Feel Good Side", brings a mellow, easy-listening side of hip hop. The second CD, the "Feel Hood Side" has a bangin' hardcore hip hop sound for hip hop enthusiasts. Looking at the track listing, the album I noticed that Roscoe Umali made a couple of appearances in the album. Big ups to Roscoe!

CPDRC Inmates' Tribute to Michael Jackson

The Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC), a maximum security prison in Cebu, Philippines have released a video dance tribute yesterday to the late Michael Jackson (may he rest in peace!). The CPDRC inmates are critically-acclaimed for making dance videos of popular songs and posting them on YouTube. I think their dances are a very cool thing because it helps the inmates beat the prison blues while they are serving time in prison. The YouTube description of their latest tribute to Michael Jackson says that this dance was completed 10 hours after receiving word of the King of Pop's passing. The songs they have done in order was: Ben, I'll Be There and finally We Are The World, a song that Michael Jackson co-wrote along with Lionel Richie. Choosing We Are The World as the last song for the tribute and waving around the many different flags of the world was a very nice touch. I was very moved by their performance.

Here is
the video that brought the CPDRC inmates international fame. It's a performance of Michael Jackson's Thriller. This video has over 26,000,0000 hits to this day!!

  • Clark Kent says that Grandmaster Flash got the "Grandmaster" part of his name from the original Grandmaster: Grandmaster Flowers from Brooklyn

Here's a HILARIOUS freestyle battle between a Korean ESL student and an American that took place in a house party. I gotta give props to the Korean guy for trying to articulate himself in English, but apparently he's pretty smashed out of his mind. I think he had enough Soju for the day.

Yellow: American Dream, Chinese Ambition Teaser

Check out this trailer of this upcoming short film called Yellow: American Dream, Chinese Ambition. The film is about Chinese gangsters in New York city's Chinatown. The length of the short film is about 22 minutes. Tony Murphy, the producer and co-writer of Yellow, got in touch with me and told me that he is planning use this upcoming short film as a spring board to develop a one hour dramatic cable series like a Chinese-styled Sopranos set in Chinatown, New York. If all goes well the series will be airing on the like of HBO, Showtime or some other US cable network. His ultimate goal is to tell interesting compelling stories about the Chinese experience in New York while examining how Americans view Asians and how Asians view themselves. I also was very impressed that he had quite an extensive knowledge about the Chinese underground and how they operate. The man did his homework!

Here is a 1 minute behind the scenes video featuring leading actor Ty Won, who plays the part of "Chino", and the co-creators of Yellow, Troy Antonio and Tony Murphy:

Freestyle Battle - Lyraflip vs Rich for a Reason

Lyraflip takes on Rich for a Reason in this freestyle battle. Lyraflip is funny as hell. His swag kinda reminds me of a Filipino Bart Simpson. Here's something crazy disses Lyraflip said to Rich for a Reason in round 2:
Where did you get your knowledge from?/
You should be denied by the United Negro College fund/
This Uncle Tom isn't good at rap/
I'm stompin' this rookie flat/
His pops is mad because you always let the white man push you back/
You couldn't even put up your first up in the hood where your block is at/
How you gonna rep Black Panthers knowing damn well that you're a pussy cat?/

OUCH!! Lol. That was craaaaazy!! Lyraflip took the win on this battle.

Freestyle Battle - Doc Whisper vs Celestial

This is freestyle battle is between Doc Whisper, a Korean rapper, and Celestial, a Bengali rapper. Doc Whisper raps like he is performing Shakespearean theater. I wonder if he ever took drama class before. Celestial had some funny lines satirizing Doc Whisper's name and then pummeled him with ethnic jokes. Doc Whisper was definitely outclassed in this battle. Celestial takes the win.

Doc Whisper's MySpace:

Freestyle Battle - Kimchee vs Sean Chris

In this freestyle battle its Kimchee taking on Sean Chris for the Bar Exam 3 and Grind Time West Tryouts at the R.E.H.A.B projects in Los Angeles, California. I was corresponding with Kimchee last week before the release of this video. It turns out that that he is actually Filipino, and not Korean. And here I thought all along he was a Korean with a tan hahaha. Kimchee told me that his real name sounds really close to Kimchee so that's why he chose that as his rap name. Anyways... moving on. Kimchee comes off a hard harder than his last battle with Tri Flaw and had some pretty crazy and random lines, which were hilarious!! He needs to work on his delivery though, because he tends to stutter a little bit. Kimchee takes the win in overtime.

UPT - Baby Baby

UPT - De Free

UPT has repackaged their 6th album New Era, and then added a twist on it renamed it De Free. WTF?!! LOL... Anyways, Baby Baby is their latest follow up single. Its a club-banger type song. It's a quite decent cut and it sounds waaaaaay better than their last hit: 흑기사 (Black Knight). The girls featured in this song aren't that bad either. Their names are Chrispy and Brownie. What cute names! I wonder if we will see or ever hear from them again?

In a recent article about UPT written in The Korean Herald on June 04, 2009, Chan was quoted in saying: "You never know who's going to be the next for Uptown because the group's so random."

Khanh Nho & Phong Le - Vườn Hoa Hồng Đỏ (Garden of Roses) are looking a piece of Vietnamese rap history. This is the first ever Viet rap video. It dates back to the year 2000 (I think). This is Khanh Nho and Phong Le collaborating together in Vườn Hoa Hồng Đỏ (meaning "Garden of Roses" in English) which refers to the nickname of the city of Portland for its many rose gardens. The song can be classified as a Vietnamese gangsta rap song or a rap song about rebellious Vietnamese youth. The video for Vườn Hoa Hồng Đỏ was shot in Portland, Oregon. The video production is pretty corny and ghetto, but it pretty much captures the essence of daily life for Vietnamese youth over in Portland back in 2000. You gotta give both Khanh Nho and Phong Le props and respect for paving the way for Vietnamese rappers.

So.... yeah I've been wondering... what happened to Khanh Nho lately? I did some google sleuthing and I found this statement written by Phong Le on April 29, 2009 in the VietRapper forum about what Khanh Nho is up to now:

Khanh Nho Move to NC for a year now... He come to to Portland Oregon some time to visit 102vietrap boy....He is stop doing anything illegal or whatever he used to say in his old song.....He been working really hard... bought him self a brand new Lexus... help his family paying bills and shit....No more thug life....

He decided not to rap anymore.....become famous is not his goal anymore....That is why he is not in my "lay tien cho gai 2" album

To me, when Khanh Nho stop writing song is a big Lost for the vietrap world.....He is my biggest influence in most of my song.... he is my mentor for the last 6 years....

It used to be Khanh Nho and Phong Le trying make a name for our self.... but now it is only Me....

That is what happen to Khanh Nho


Wow... so I guess that's that huh. Khanh Nho isn't rapping anymore. But hey, you gotta give props to Khanh Nho for making a change and trying to do something positive in his life. If you wanna hear another classic track by Khanh Nho with Thai Ngo, check out Vietnamese Gang. That song is an Asian rap classic.

Hahaha... Jay-Z is going in the same direction as Nas did when Nas did Hip Hop Is Dead a while back. A lot of rappers look up to Jay-Z so I wonder how they are gonna take this one. I'm not big a Jay-Z fan (I'm not a Jay-Z hater either) but I gotta say that I like this song. D.O.A.

Edison Chen breaks his silence on CNN

Its been over a year and then some since one of Hong Kong's biggest scandals: the internet release of sex photos involving Edison Chen with some of Hong Kong's biggest female celebrities. Now singer-actor (and rapper) Edison Chen finally breaks his silence on CNN's Talk Asia about the scandal, his death threats, his career and the whole schebang. The interviewer asked him a whole slew of gut-wrenching questions about the scandal and you could see all the awkwardness in Edison's facial expressions and body language in answering them. It was as if Edison was just reliving his nightmare again. I personally found the interview very awkward to watch.

Shogunna - City Life

Shogunna in front of Seoul Station in Seoul, Korea

Looks like Shogunna is making some major moves in Korea. He has released a new music video for his song called City Life, produced by Luka Lee. City Life is a soul-searching type song. Its a pretty decent cut. The music video was shot in Seoul, Korea.

20th Anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Incident

June 4th marks the the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square incident which was one of the darkest events in modern Chinese history. In 1989, hundreds of thousands of Chinese university students peacefully gathered in Tiananmen Square to protest about government corruption and demanded political reform. After six weeks of continued protests, on June 4th, 1989 the Chinese government rolled out military tanks and troops to crackdown on the student protesters. The exact number of deaths resulting from the incident are unknown. Some sources say its in the hundreds, others say its in the thousands.

By all means, watch this 2 part documentary by AlJazeera called It happened in Tiananmen Square. This documentary explains how the Tianamen Square incident unfolded and features some of the surviving protesters speaking out about their experience in Tiananmen Square.

24Herbs - Respect Tou Pok Kai

24Herbs -24Herbs

Respect Tou Pok Kai is the debut hit-single from 24Herbs. The phrase Respect Tou Pok Kai is an oxymoron. On one hand you have the word "respect" and on the other you have "Pok Kai". Pok Kai is a curse word in Cantonese which literally means "go drop dead on the street". And so when you put it all together, Respect Tou Pok Kai means respect till you drop dead LOL. Respect Tou Pok Kai song has really, really, really grown on me. I think this song is awesome. First of all, the song has a catchy beat and a catchy hook. Secondly, it has a really a positive message that advocates respect for all people. Third, the song has a bit of an edge, which is something refreshing amongst all the squeaky-clean and crappy Cantopop songs nowadays. Respect Tou Pok Kai can be found in 24Herbs' self-titled album released in 2008.
