The Shanghai Hiphop II Party last night was hot! Seriously, everyone upstairs at Club Fusion was sweating through replica NBA jerseys so much it made their bling bling bling that much brighter. And Shanghaiist never saw so many New York Yankees fans in China before. That was cool. But the room was so damn hot! Unfortunately, the music — like the beer, which came served on ice — was just lukewarm. But these are the early days of Shanghainese rap. Give it time.
Shanghai Diaries has a short write-up of the show, 42 photos over at Flickr and
what should eventually be three video clips on YouTube (direct links here, here and here). Shanghai Streets was there, too — and, as always, came away with some great shots. You can also check out all Flickr pics tagged “shanghaihiphop.” John at Sinosplice promises a post about the show at exactly 7 am Monday, Shanghai time.
