The Rise and Controversy of Asian Rap Culture (Documentary)

VICE launched season 2 of their Minority Reports, and in episode 1 they speak on the rise of Asian Rap Culture, as Lee Adams travels to the first-ever Asian Hip Hop Festival and the streets of Long Beach to investigate the rapid rise of Asian rappers and whether or not the rest of the community is willing to accept them.

He speaks with rising artists including Rich Brian$tupid Young, and the Higher Brothers about why they wanted to get involved with rap and the backlash from using the name Rich Chigga.

Additionally, Lee speaks to Hip Hop radio hosts Ebro and J Cruz to discuss the controversy of Asian rappers feeling entitled to use “the N word” and why non black Hip Hop artists need to be culturally responsible.
