It’s All About Asian Hip Hop

Basically, I like any kind of music. Pop, rock, soul, R n B, hip hop, Bollywood song, folk songs, anything, as long as it good to be heard. But, I don’t know exactly when I fell in love with hip hop music because ever since I just like hip hop music very much! Before I know K-Pop, I was a fan of Eminem, Jay Z, Missy Elliot, and other Western Hip Hop Artist. Then I knew K-Pop and just fell in love with Epik High for the very first time.

Last week I read one of soompi featured news about Top Ten Asian American Rappers. Wow….! Amazing..! and then I realized that Asia also has talented rappers. You can read this complete news here.

From this list, I found that Dumbfoundead -Korean American rapper- is in that list. After I watched his rap battle video, I was amazed. He’s so damn cool..! His words,,, so creative and his voice is also nice.. I like him!! ^^

And lately, he’s released his newest song titled “Clouds” which collaborated with Jay Park and Clara Chung. You can download this song for free here. This song is about how you get through from all your problems, it said that for every dark is always a light. To be honest, its lyrics so inspiring me.

Most people do not like rapper because of its words (taboo words, swore words, etc). But, I think they just try to express what they feel of people, our situation now, war, disaster. They try to criticize of human rights, environment, or the latest issue. Furthermore, they also want people struggle for their life, don’t easily give up. Well, that’s my thought about rapper.

Here’s the lyrics of the latest Dumbfoundead song “Cloud”. Full of inspirations…honestly…

CLOUDS
Roll, roll back the clouds
Let the sun shine through
[VERSE 1-DUMBFOUNDEAD]
There’s light at the end of the tunnel
I haven’t seen it
Not all of us become rockstars and ballerinas
Even in California the sun ain’t always beaming
Can’t predict the forecast for all four seasons
We have dark days
Can’t make your car payments
Workin a whackass job living in mom’s basement
Some lands never get rain so there’s starvation
Some only see snow through neighborhoods scarred faces
Not everything is set in stone
The weather changes
It’s like god that the devil’s trying to entertain us
Walked in the treacherous storm and overcame it
It is never an easy path on the road to greatness
So don’t you give me that boo hoo hoo shit
We’re moving on to that new new new shit
Look up into the clouds and watch it blow away
Until my problems just go away

[CHORUS-Clara]
When the clouds are in the sky
Know that they’re just passing by
There’ll be sunshine
Yeah
If your days are stormy nights
Dry the raindrops from your eyes
There’ll be sunshine

[VERSE 2-JAY]
Everybody works hard for their goals to achieve
But like the ocean is sea, man, the motion is free
So nothing ever adds up the way we want it to
I guess my math teacher was just a substitute
Everybody hits a rough patch turbulence in the sky
Life’s a cow I made a burger
And I’m serving it with some fries
Gotta make do with the cards that are dealt
And though it’s hard as hell
I know that God will help
Cause although I live in Seattle
It’s not always gonna rain
There’ll be some sunny days coming up this way
Everybody’s wanting to see me struggling
Running away from pain
But I know the wondrous things are coming to visit again someday
So no worries I just stand here with a smirk on my face
Although I know some people out there throwin dirt on my name
But it’s all good
Still show em some love
Cause unlike that girl from the movie
I ain’t holdin no grudge

[CHORUS-CLARA]
When the clouds are in the sky
Know that they’re just passing by
There’ll be sunshine
Yeah
If your days are stormy nights
Dry the raindrops from your eyes
There’ll be sunshine

[BRIDGE-CLARA]
I’ve been a little lost
But I’m not colorblind
I’ll follow that yellow brick road
And put my fears behind
And on that yellow road
I’ll find a wishing well
Cast a line and in time I know I’ll prevail
