DòngTīng Song of the Week



This week’s song comes from Shantou’s AFinger Crew. Language is the defining element of their style, and the 10-member crew raps in both Mandarin and their local Chaozhou dialect. Their self-produced tracks mix elements of Hip Hop, pop and reggae. This mixtape track is an introduction to their album, the first ever Chaozhou dialect Hip Hop album.
