May 24 (NBD) -- "In Chengdu, the environment for hip-hop has already been established. If you try to do rap, Chengdu is the best place for you," 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.
