As a fellow Asian American, I have high respect for TOKiMONSTA and the success she’s achieved as an Asian female DJ. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Jennifer Lee gathered a steady following with her unique ability to fuse vintage sounds with progressive styles. I’ve been rooting for her since I first heard her track “The World is Ours” back in 2009 and I’m excited to see where her career will go. Keep a look out for her full length album Half Shadows set to be released this Spring.
Shout out to my friend D. Emmerie for today’s song recommendation. If you’re in Orange County and a follower of hip hop, be sure to check out Urban Arts Outreach in Santa Ana. They are a fellowship that hosts sessions for people of different backgrounds and beliefs to join in community through the art of bboying, graffiti, emceeing, and deejaying.
