Playlist: Chinese hip-hop

It may have only been around for about 15 years, but Chinese hip hop boasts a vibrancy and inventiveness that has turned it into one of China's most interesting underground genres. This playlist showcases some of the country's most well-loved hip hop artists (minus a few important ones who aren't on Xiami, like In3), whose rhymes incorporate everything from Old Beijing slang to pop culture movie samples.
