would say because Asian American culture look down on Hispanic and Black people and everything they stand for while at the same time looking up at White culture as desirable and thus making a career in Hip-Hop taboo.

Agree with Virunga to a point. And Id rather speak to other races as far as hip hop because they are likely to know the Fashawn,J. Cole, Fly Lo, Madlib types and not just the BS on the radio. Hip hop is like anything popular, you have people that listen because its "in" then you have those that truly love the culture and divulge. Honestly don't know why there isn't a big Asian act though. I've seen AI in concert, even though she's RnB, and have no clue why she isn't a superstar.

marketability. dont matter if you're white, black, green or whatever.. if labels can push you and make money they will. Though in general, i don't think there are hardly as many Asians trying to rap, compared to other races/ethnicities. I blame the karaoke machine.

lol media is a partial entity that has people thinking that only certain races make good music as if the two were somehow related. truthfully, our society eats it up. we're okay with being fed shitty music.

asian kids are good at math because they truly believe that's the way they were born. Anybody will work hard for what they think they're supposed to be able to do. It's a vicious cycle.

nobody wants to listen to a hip hop song about high test scores


If someone would make a rap song about all the stuff in Chemistry and Biology I have to memorize, I would definitely buy it.

Yo, I was just out in Cali, and I noticed most Asians, especially Flips, got mad knowledge of hip hop, and into more than just radio shit.

So, why hasn't there been some strong Asian representation in Hip Hop aside from DJ in?



Whats "mad knowledge" and alot of people listen to non-mainstream rap, shit doesn't automatically make you a head....

There's plenty. Just because you don't know about them doesn't mean they don't exist.
