Earth, wood, water, fire, metal – plus hip-hop beats and two magnificent voices.
Underground Shanghai hip-hop rapper Cee joins fellow rising star YEHAIYAHAN (the artist formerly known as ChaCha) for the concept album based around five traditional Chinese elements – earth, wood, water, fire, and metal – hence the title “五” (“Five”).
Blazing together a sly and ear-worm pleasing hip-hop album that feels fresh and invigorating, it gives the two dynamic voices a chance to strut their stuff over five tracks of wildly diverse stylings and tones.
For Earth, YEHAIYAHAN brings a soulful buoyancy to the production’s more bubbly overtones that go down like a glass of champagne before Cee rips into it with a collective yet laser-eyed reflection on love in our decaying world.
