Asian Rap Worldwide v2.0!!

What's up guys. I am moving Asian Rap Worldwide into a different platform (finally!). Say goodbye to blogger! It was fun while it lasted. Say hello to weebly! I am also giving the new website a brand new name: Asian Hip Hop Times. Asian Rap Worldwide will NO LONGER be updated as I will move everything to Asian Hip Hop Times. I'll be keeping the old website for archive purposes. My twitter and facebook and email will be the same!

Ciao! Cya there! Last one there is a stinky tofu!

Kate - Get out of my life feat Lisha

Get out of my life by Kate featuring Lisha is song produced by the Cambodian label Klap Ya Handz Productions. The song although distinctly Khmer, it has some dance and R&B elements fused into it. This song I assume is about a woman's frustration about her man's infidelity. It's fascinating how both Kate and Lisha adopt similar attitudes to that of American R&B singers when singing about this subject.

Study claims that Chinese people evolved from Indians

According to this recent study I'm not only Chinese, I'm also African and Indian. This might explain my fondness of rap music and curry.

If this study is true, then Columbus was right in calling the Native Americans, "Indians". LOL.

Frankly, I'm skeptical about this theory, but it does provoke some thought. I think Tibetans, Bhutanese, Thais and Burmese people share similar features with Indians though...

The Chinese evolved from Indians: Study

A genetic study has found that Indians are the ancestors of the Chinese and other East Asian populations.

The study, a joint project of 10 Asian countries, found that India received a wave of migration from Africa 60,000-70,000 years ago and these early humans subsequently moved to East and Southeast Asia. The earlier belief was that humans from Africa reached India and East and Southeast Asia separately.

The study has important implications, especially in the understanding of human migratory patterns and in the investigation of genetics and disease.

The findings of the five-year study — conducted by a group of 90 scientists, including those from India, in a consortium of 40 Asian laboratories under the Human Genome Organisation — have been published in the journal Science.

The study analysed genetic data of 1,900 individuals representing 73 population groups. The findings showed that Asian genetic ancestry correlated highly with ethnic and linguistic groups and “considerable gene flow was observed among sub-populations of the clusters” that were studied; the clusters included “groups believed to practice endogamy (marriage within a group) based on linguistics, cultural and ethic information”.

“This large study establishes that Indians are ancestors of the Japanese, Chinese and all other East Asians. All these populations have a common genetic origin and it shows that India represents a microcosm of Asia’s genetic diversity,” said Samir Brahmachari, director-general, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research — a participant in the study.

Motion - So In Love instrumental

This is an instrumental from Malaysian producer Motion. Pretty cool slow-tempo beat. Anybody want to rap over this beat?

Urban Rage freestylin over Hypnotize beat

Urban Rage is an Asian guy from Vancouver that makes YouTube videos. He makes some pretty funny Youtube videos and in some of them he freestyles in them. I thought this particular video where he's cruising around and rapping to Biggie's Hypnotize instrumental was pretty cool.
