Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself, My Name Is…

Peace dp dot com family

I’ve been sighted on these pages before mainly via the Sneaker Fiends Unite! NYC tours and subsequent kicks write-ups… You all know my Nike game is proper, so don’t even front on the heir apparent to air.

What some of you don’t know though is that I moved to Beijing, China this summer just to take the movement to an international level. I know china has a reputation for fake Jordans and knockoff Gucci bags, but in the end isn’t getting it however you live it so Hip-Hop? Please believe that Beijing doesn’t play when it comes to rocking the official tissue either.

So I’ve been moving and building during the last couple months, hitting the studio to drop mixtape trax and to start developing an album, plus linking with heads all over Beijing. The beautiful thing about Hip-Hop here is that it is still a subversive movement. Too young to be pop, too street to be censored, and too foreign to be mainstream.

What this translates to is passion for the culture. I’m talking about top emcees who still get up with pieces all around the city, hiphop parties with the top emcees rapping over the top DJ’s spinning while the city’s best bboys get down. It’s a beautiful thing.

Internets, walk with me. As your foreign correspondent I will be staying in the streets with my pen and pad, camera and notebook. As I live, record, perform, and travel daily throughout Beijing, let me put y’all on to what is, for 1.3 billion people, the local Hip-Hop scene.
