Episode 66: Music Transcends Language (ft. Aleebi)
September 9, 2020
If you've ever used Spotify or YouTube to listen to music, you've probably stumbled upon a song in a language you don't know how to speak. But have you ever heard a song that features not just one, but 3 different languages?
This week we chat with Crystal's high school friend Austin (aka Aleebi). He makes music in English, Korean, and Japanese and has garnered over 200,000 total streams on Spotify.
Austin shares with us his experience as an Asian-American rapper in an increasingly global music market. What role does language play in self-expression? How can Asian artists explore the Hip Hop space without veering into cultural appropriation?
