Shanghai-based label Jadecraft Records gathers three of the hip-hop scene’s most talented lyricists for the concept LP, “Strangers in Shanghai”, about love lost and found in the metropolitan juggernaut.
Joining forces are ChaCha (of AM444), Yunnan rapper Tang Renti, and Beijing’s J-Fever. It’s a lovely ode to Shanghai – one that’s full of lush and decay, leading the listener on an imaginative journey that’s not without emotional resonance.
While you can stream “Strangers in Shanghai” LP in its entirety here, here’s one of our favourite tracks, “Flying Disc” (飞盘).
