Rap music is a genre of music that emerged in the United States in the 1960s and has since become hugely popular. While rap music has been around for a long time, it's only recently become a global phenomenon. This article explores why this shift happened and how it will affect the music industry as a whole.

The U.S. hip hop music industry has been massive and dominant.

Hip hop music is a global phenomenon that has been growing throughout the U.S., but also in other countries like South Korea, Japan and India. The hip hop industry in the United States has been massive and dominant since its inception in 1975 with artists such as Run DMC, LL Cool J and Public Enemy leading the way for many years to come.

The U.S. hip hop industry has had a huge influence on how people around the world consume their music today because it provides an opportunity for artists from all over America or beyond to showcase their talent through rap music production techniques that are unique from one another but still retain elements from traditional styles like jazz fusion or rock n roll with hints of soulful vocals thrown in there too!

China's social media platforms are growing fast.

With the rise of rap music and its influence on Western culture, there are many who believe that Asia is at the forefront of this movement. China's social media platforms are growing fast, and it's no wonder why: the country has a large population with many young people who want to express themselves through music. With so many young people being able to express themselves through rap culture in China or other Asian countries, it makes sense that they would do so as well.

Rap culture is now huge in China and other Asian countries.

Rap culture is now huge in China and other Asian countries. In Japan, Korea and India, rap music has become more popular than ever before. The trend started in the West first but soon spread to Asia. It is not just about fans dancing or wearing clothes with rapping lyrics on it; there are also many artists who write their own music or produce their own tracks.

There are many different styles of rap music such as gangsta rap or hardcore hip-hop which are all very popular among young people today because they allow them to express themselves freely without worrying about what others think about them (or even if anyone notices).

Asian rappers are taking the U.S. by storm, and they're here to stay.

The U.S. hip hop music industry has been massive and dominant, but in the past few years, there's been an influx of Asian rappers taking over America's top charts.

The rise of this new form of music can be traced back to China's social media platforms that have grown rapidly over the last decade or so. In fact, it was on Weibo (a Chinese social media platform) that rapper Macklemore became famous for his song “Thrift Shop” in 2013—the same year he released this album with Ryan Lewis called Gemini.

This type of global rap is also known as “Asian rap” because it often incorporates elements from other cultures such as K-pop music and Bollywood films into its soundscape; however these artists don't necessarily identify themselves as being part Asian American (or any other race).

Rappers in Asia don't have to be part of big companies to be successful.

Rapping is a global phenomenon. Rappers from all over the world are trying to make their mark on music, and many of them are doing so by combining rap with other genres. They may be influenced by American hip-hop, but they’re also influenced by their local culture and history—and that means that the music they create can reflect the country or region where it’s made.

Rap has been popular in China since at least 2009 when Wu Wei (王偉) released his debut album “The Story of Sorrow” on Sound Cloud; however, it wasn't until 2015 when rap started gaining popularity in Japan through artists like Exile Crew who later became known as Styles P's group The Lox (styled lox). And then there was South East Asia: Malaysia has produced several famous artists including Malaysian rapper Rich Brian who rose to fame after releasing his debut song "Dat $tick" which went viral online

The rise of Asian rappers could shift the global music industry

The rise of Asian rappers could shift the global music industry. Rap music is now popular in Asia, but it's also gaining popularity in the United States. This means that the genre will be more accessible to a larger audience than ever before and may influence how people consume music across the world.

Rap has been referred to as "urban poetry" because it allows artists who don't speak English well or do not have access to traditional media outlets like television or radio stations (like most pop stars), an opportunity to express themselves through rap lyrics and/or videos online.


The rise of Asian rappers could shift the global music industry. In this article we explored the history of rap, how it got its start in New York City, and some of the most famous rappers who came out of there. We also looked at some Asian rappers who have had success since then by releasing albums on major labels like Universal Republic Records or Sony Music Entertainment Japan. These artists were able to break into mainstream America because their music was distinct from American hip hop artists at the time (both lyrically as well as stylistically). The end result is that more people are now listening to rap outside of America's borders than ever before!
