US-Sino Currency Rap Battle

by doorhalfopen

One of my friends posted this and I thought it was pretty hilarious. I was expecting it to be silly and probably racist, but it ended up doing a decent job showing both points of view. Maybe some people will be bothered by the Chinese accent they tried to incorporate into the raps. I tried to imagine it without the accent and it wouldn’t have worked. It’s not like they could have done half of the song in Mandarin.

It seems like they spent a lot of time on it, and some of the lines were intentionally off-rhythm. It’s hard to describe because it just works. Anyway, it’s a good balance of humor and simple summary of recent events in economics, and I think it is worth the watch. Enjoy the video below!
