One of my biggest observations after living in Hong Kong for two years is that as a city, it is quite small. Without a doubt, the Hiphop community is even smaller.
Even in such a relatively environment, there are folks that are definitely passionate about the culture and the further development of it in the region.
One of these individuals is Mastamic. When I first got to Hong Kong in ’08, he was one of the first people I connected with. We hit it off naturally based on our mutual respect for the art of MC-ing and the love for Hiphop culture.
When I released my first all Cantonese mixtape later that year, he did not hesitate to accept my invitation to jump on a track.
Today, I decided to return the favor and lay a verse for a track off his upcoming mixtape.
Mastamic, DJ Galaxy (producer) and moi.
Mastamic is a true student of the culture which is a commonality we share. Constantly active in pushing Cantonese/Hong Kong Hiphop forward, what I truly admire about him is his determination to advance not only Hiphop culture but the mindset of the local citizens in general.
Flipped the Wu sample quite nicely.
