Dope Vietnamese Rap Mix

Over at Bodegapop, Gary has assembled a dope mix of Vietnamese hip hop tracks.

Gary, always on the hunt for unique international music, was driven to find some Vietnamese hip hop at his local Vietnamese media store in Chicago.

After asking the woman behind the counter, he received the response, “Have you heard any Vietnamese rap music?"

Unsure if she meant that it didn’t exist or if she thought he just wouldn’t like it, he did some digging on his own and found that it was the latter:

“It turned out she meant (b) and just assumed that I would hate what the Vietnamese--Vietnamese-Americans, I believe--are doing with the genre. Wrong."

Gary provides some track names but no artisits on his mix which can be downloaded here.

If anyone can identify the artists on these tracks, let us know in the comments below!
