The Chinese American Hip Hop

October 2, 2008

Vodpod videos no longer available.

For who doesnt know, I present the Mountain Brothers.
The first time that I listened to this guys, was in 1999 with the album Self Vol 1.
The group is considered cultural pioneers, being one of the first Asian American hip-hop groups, and also for the lack of sampling of other music in construction of their own.
The group disbanded in 2003, shortly after the release of the album Triple Crown. CHOPS is the only member still active in hip-hop, working with artists such as Kanye West, Chamillionaire, Bahamadia, Planet Asia, and Paul Wall.

If you liked, you should try this song called Paper Chase.
