Vietnamese Rap

When I first heard “Chung Mot Vong Tay,” a Thai Dang’s hip-hop joint, I thought these guys and gals were on crack. The funk-inflected production is groovy, and the flows are straight bugging—even the ladies sound like they are high on the hook. After listening to the lyrics, however, I am impressed. Underneath the zoned-out delivery is an encouraging message to the youth. It’s quite original. Big up to Thai Dang, Thanh, Bao Tan, and Xanh Ai. Keep the positive vibe alive fellas (homegirls too). I am diggin’ it.
