Photo Story: Echosmith Closes Out Their "Inside a Dream Tour"
The Chinese-born, Boston/NYC-raised rapper Bohan Phoenix has been paving an independent music revolution in China, rejecting the old ways of major labels or TV shows as the only way to stardom. Hoping to make the same impression stateside, Phoenix debuts his new EP, ‘Overseas’.
On the new effort, Bohan’s ethos represents the young people in China who are more culturally curious, independent, and open-minded than the past generations. Featuring production from Ryan Hemsworth and Mike Gao, along with an appearance from MaSiWei of China’s breakthrough rap group Higher Brothers, Bohan relays stories about his childhood in China and as a young immigrant in America, while opening up about the challenges of being an independent musician in Asia.
Arriving amidst a Chinese government crackdown on hip-hop culture, including a ban on rappers and tattooed artists performing on television, the mere existence of ‘Overseas’ is an act of protest. Re-establishing Hip-Hop as a vehicle for positivity and social change while challenging prevailing American notions about rappers of Asian descent.
