Amid the crowd emerges 88rising, a media company and record label aiming to create a platform for Asian talents.
88rising is no exception — in truth, the company’s path to success has been undeniably intertwined with Black culture and music.
88rising’s most popular videos at the start of its inception featured Black artists reacting to the label’s Asian artists.
The Black artists featured include Lil Yachty, Migos and Ghostface Killah, shown praising the label’s artists and the cultural diversity they bring to the genre.
Until then, the gap between the East and West will continue to exist — and Asian artists will struggle to be supported unless first supporting other minorities.
