The business is that most americans believe is the best in the world.
People who don't see themselves...
Nobody can be 100% fluent in a language that isn't yours. Can be sure that i'm not the person more fluent in english!!
If we have difficulty with our own language, you never know everything about, imagine someone who studied the language for a few years...
And you will not fall on top of me, I'm just giving my opinion, and see well, I said that "the majority", not "all" the americans...
If the hat serve...

I love Nami Tamaki and Nujabes and I'm Haitian-American. I dont get why other people keep being mean about it. It's just music. And we're just people, goodness.

They are better then American Rappers. I don't like American Rap, but I love Asian Rap. I'm sure they would be accepted by Asian music fans, just like all the rest of the Asian bands that come here. (:
Back-On came to Canada and they do a bit of Rapping, and I'm pretty sure almost everyone loved them (:


yes i agree. To me Asian Rap is much better than American Rap. And Im sure that not only will they be accepted by Asian fans but by others as well.

EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN TASTE AND OPINION SO JUST STOP JUDGING!

The question was is if Americans would accept Asian rappers and singers.
75% of the people are giving a whole different answer.

My answer is the big NO.
Asian music in general has more meaning than American music does.
Most American music is full of talk about sex, drugs, Lamborghini's, and the ghetto.
Plus, most rap videos are so predictable. They're filled with half naked girls for God's sake!
Sure, there are people like Natasha Beddingfield, but their aren't that many!

Look at J-rock! Even those scary looking bands have meaningful lyrics!
[[I think one the sweetest J-rock songs I've heard so far is Vidoll's 'Blue Star']]
Asians like creativity and new ideas. That's why people aren't judged in Japan for their appearance.
Have you seen pictures of the Harajuku Bridge?!
Ever since I was born, almost EVERYTHING in America has been the same.
Clothing, accessories, brands, designs, etc. You name it! You see the same thing everywhere you go.

Plus, no offense, but, lots of Americans ARE judgmental.
Don't get me wrong, I'm an American too.

Japan and Korea have much much more things and ideas than America will ever have.
There are actually lots of Asian artists that make more than people like Diddy or Jay-Z.
