Do you think Americans would accept Asians rappers/singers?
Posted 1/29/08
I agree...I dont thin tht azns would get a chance because americans descriminate anything that is foreign and only like their own race and music

Actually, I think American's might accept asian rappers! Considering there are so many people under anime/manga/gaming/drama influences. Even just one song might be a big break, never know.

(Canadians are different on the other hand. Since asian media's not as popular as it is in America. So many people don't appreciate foreign stuff, and think it's "uncool". Yes, close-minded. Or at least where I live, it's like that.)

i wouldn't say they're (asian rapper) are the best but i wouldn't say americans are either. because they are 2 completely different styles of music, they cant be compared, it is only comparable through opinion.

Also because its in a different language and sounds funny and confusing to some they are less likely to sell tickets to a concert in america therefor they dont tour over here

americans should accept asian rappers cuz american rap most of the time doesn't even make sense...
asian rap makes more sense than american rap. i would accept asian rappers well, 1. cuz i am asian and 2. its cuz it sounds better and makes wayy more sense. most americans are not very open to different styles and genres of music.
i for 1 is VERY open to other styles and genres of music but they have to sound to my ears.
i think more asian artist, rappers, whatever should come make their debuts in the US cuz they're just so good.
some of my american friends like asian music too and im pretty glad they do.
y can't americans be more open to these types of music? i really wonder.

I kind of prefer it when asians rap in their native language...it goes with the songs that they are singing as well...
In terms of the whole acceptance thing...i guess it's partly due to the language barrier...

Have you guys heard/noticed what a popular language [Mandarin] Chinese is becoming to learn in the United States? It's really growing ~ especially in the grade schools. I'd say if things keep going like this [especially if China does become the dominant economy] in a generation or two or so there might be some acceptance of Asian singers/rappers in America. We'll just have to wait and see.

But I think there's no way there'll be wide enough acceptance anytime soon for America tours and album releases to be a worthwhile investment for any Asian artist - the majority's mindset here is not open to such things... but kids who're raised on Asian [coughChinese] culture/language might be...
