Jesse Appel (aka Laowai style), China’s very own Psy-meets-Weird-Al-meets-Sinologist, has released his latest single Mo’ Money Mo’ Fazhan发展 (Development) rap about the Chinese economy. It’s fantastic.
Appel stated that he chose to write a macroeconomic rap, as most raps tend to focus on the petty microeconomics of purchasing habits, guns and drugs. Instead, we have Opium Wars, Mao, Deng, and Chinese history played out on a sweet beat.
