All couples on TV are fake, didn't you know that? *insert other generalizations here*
If I had to choose, I would pick the harder-spoken, edgier pronunciation of Canto more. One of my most favourite languages for singing, poetry, anything musical. Mandarin feels a bit flat and more suited for speaking IMO. Also I can understand Mandarin better, so the lyrics, which are just cheese on rice, gets even more awkward. Everything is so heavily laced with idioms and flowery prose.
Masta Mic is cool! AM444...I'm still stuck on the vocalist. Seems to be the weak link. Vocals aren't strong, and there isn't enough of other things (not talking about looks) to make up for it. Everything else is awesome.
Of course it's fake but they look pretty good together, better than her real life boyfriend that's for sure. LoL Plus kook got them crazy musKULLS.
i know, never heard canto word play/ lyricism/ "swag" even though the dood is a dork, like that before. haha Was pretty mind blown when I heard his 2 mixtapes. Too bad jin sucks now, even though his ABC album had so much potential. Damn he was one of the 1st hip hop artist/ rappers i listened to when i got into this genre of music. Sad to see him regressing artistically and musically but at least he has found success in HK. So i am happy to see him doing so well in the HK scene but still.......... just like Snacky Chan is wasted in Korea. Sigh.
Damn for reals, i love everything in AM444. It all gels so nicely and i would say is the best thing "hip hop" related i have heard out of China period. It's not saying much since its china after all.... but still.........................LoL
I use to listen to mostly HK artist for my asian pop fix but since i got more into asian hip hop etc, i can't really enjoy it anymore. Just too bland with the same generic lovey dovey topics of love this love that... guess this could be said for pop music everywhere. When I listen to mando music i tend to listen to Taiwanese artist more, cuz mainland Chinese artist like their movies/ variety shows, etc is pretty bad.
Damn this thread is so dynamic I LOVE IT!!!
