America is in a state of hardcore tribalism and divisiveness. For Asian Americans, the stereotypes and old tropes have morphed into real hate. SoCal hip hop artist and activist Kaze Jones is, sadly, all too familiar with the current climate. Never one to be a victim, Kaze flips the script and the reclaims the narrative with his new single, “Asians Represent.” Presented in conjunction with Joy Ruckus Club, “Asians Represent” is a statement, loudly proclaiming Asian Americans’ place in hip hop…and their place in today’s culture.
Produced by Ionika from Philadelphia., “Asians Represent” is a hard-hitting, trap inspired track bringing Kaze Jones together with a superstar team of Asian American artists and MCs fresh on the scene. Kaze delivers his verses with aggression in his signature rasp, blending perfectly with the philosophical, rapid-fire rhymes of Chicago native Monotone, LA rising talent JVNHO and the smooth lyricism of Cali’s own Tealousy. “Asians Represent” is an unapologetic anthem of cultural pride and staking a claim in the world hip hop.
Listen to “Asians Represent,” presented by Kaze Jones and Joy Ruckus Club, from the forthcoming album The Alumni.
