Hip-hop is about finding one's own tone and style, says 'Rap of China' star Wang Yitai

 

 

May 24 (NBD) -- "If I can give younger rappers any advice, that would be keep calm and stick to your own way. Do not need to follow anybody's step. You must know what's your own tone, what's your own style and find your own way," said Chengdu-born rapper Wang Yitai in an interview with National Business Daily.

The 24-year-old rapper shot to fame in The Rap of China Season 2, a rap competition show credited for making hip-hop widespread and mainstream in China.

This January, Wang was awarded as "New Artist of the Year" and his song Can't Take My Eyes Off You was awarded the "Ten Best Songs in 2018", by NetEase Cloud Music, a Spotify-like online music platform in China.
