In general it depends what they got(the quality) how they got it(the content) and what their about(the context).

I know for sure if Americans understood Asian languages in general then yeah, cause there are some rappers/singers in and outside of Asia who are skilled in their own languages.

As for rapping/singing in English...eh, same as in general, but they'd have to be REALLY good if they plan on reinventing the wheel, or they would have start something new.

I agree. If americans could undertand asian languages a lot of them would already be big here. Anything to get us out of the gangsta rap rut.

Again,
if they can speak properly
and have the generic "look"
they can surely make it.

we the fans should suffer because immature and
racial HATERRSS.



ahh i know what you mean. i love big bang and epik high too, but all my white friends make fun of me for listening to them. that's why I learn to keep my mouth shut about my asian obsessions hahaha. I don't know if american people would accept asian ANYTHING in general. its annoying how most americans think anything foreign or different from them is "weird." and plus, with all the sterotypes around, i think americans would never even give asian music a chance. I personally think american rap is usually crap with no meaning to it (some is really good though). but asian music and rap is MUCH meaningful and nicer to listen to. I LOVE TABLO!! ahaha, ok yeah thats my say [=

As much as I love Asian rap, there's a slim chance they'll make it in the U.S. I mean they'll be totally critized by the thuggish rappers and most Americans in general for not having a "hard" or "ghetto" look or being too corny. The closest we have to a successful Asian-American rapper is Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park... so, hopefully the door will open some day for Asian music?

not all americans would accept asian rappers/singers. 1st off, people are entitled to their own opinions, 2nd you can't please everybody and 3rd, there's this racist thing that they have, most of them deny being a racist but i have experienced it myself, not only me, but a couple of my friends also.

I am American and I love Asian music. I listen to it more than American music. I don't understand what they are saying, but I look up the translations for it in English. I have learned how to pronounce alot of the lyrics especially TVXQ. I love them. They have such good voices and I love all of their songs mostly Purple Line. And my hispanic friend even likes it. Me, her, and my other Asian friend are over obsessed with TVXQ. I think, though, that alot of Americans are quite rude. This dumb kid on my bus always makes fun of me and my friends for listening to TVXQ. Ugh, he is the dumbest and most rude person I have ever met.

Americans don't appreciate other countries music, not just asians.
Its just that the rest of the world likes our music.
That makes your countries better than mine because you guys are more open-minded.
