Don’t Call Mama: Rap battles have been getting popular in this city, as more and more hip-hopper are starting to stand out and create their own sound in their own language. If you have never heard Canto-rap before, you should, just to catch up with the trend. Unlike American rap, Canto-rap doesn’t just have to be about cursing each other, it can be about respect, it can be about what MC really is. Though some of the contestants were not creative enough to say anything other than swear words, and someone’s mom, but that has made the other ones stand out even more.

Through ‘Don’t Call Mama’, we can see that Canto-rap may not rhyme like American rap, which every single line is melodic, of course, that seems to be ideal and catchy, while in Canto-rap, staying with the beat and getting the crowd into what you do seems to be the most important. Even though, honestly, I cannot say that I will pay a hundred bucks to buy their stuff… yet (if the contestants releases a CD), but I can see a pretty impressive future if more people in Hong Kong can get involved and get into it, it’s still taking baby steps, but it’s growing, and it’s all good while we’re getting there.
