International Hip-Hop

As a fan of hiphop in general and someone who loves languages, I like to listen to hiphop and R&B from all over the world. Besides in English and Korean I'm really into these genres in Dutch, Papiamento, and German. Also some French, Norwegian and Japanese.

What kind of hiphop do you guys listen to? Can you recommend any artists you like, maybe even your local ones?

And, I'm really curious: Is there R&B in Spanish, Italian or Portuguese?

I recommend you Vietnamese R&B/Hip-hop! I'm half French, half Vietnamese so I listen to V-Pop and there are so many good artists, especially Lady Killah crew!

I have so many artists I would like to introduce but I'll just put a few:

Andree Right Hand - DCME (Feat. Rhymastic)

Andree Right Hand - Where U At (Feat. Jc Hưng)

Binz - Fall For Your Type (Feat. Am1r)

Lil' Knight, Emily, JustaTee & Andree - Ngọn Nến Trước Gió

Thank you for the amazing recommendations @Pascaln93!

Having a bit of a hard time with tonal languages and rap but definitely digging the R&B. Also like the cheesiness here and there. 😀

Are those popular artists in the Vpop scene, like, are they mainstream or is there an underground scene as well?

I love french rap but I barely know what's going on there right now. I really liked the vibe of 1995 and Vicelow (I was learing how to dance hip-hop listening to him).

 

I hope there's spanish R&B but mostly as I met spanish or more latin music I met with reggaeton, rap and bachata, salsa etc

Sooo if we are talking about hip-hop in spanish I guess the most are Bad Bunny, Farruko, Rvssian

They like sensual music with lot of bass, 808 bass is like obligatory haha it sounds really awesome

@Lena You're welcome 😉

Ahah yes vietnamese rap is special, the pronunciation isn't fluid and very nice to listen, but I'm used to it now. I have others good songs especially R&B songs I can recommend if you're interested 🙂

At the beginning they were underground but they gained popularity. Now they're more mainstream but they're not still very active.

But there is underground scene in Vitenam too, it's a young country and the new generation is less conservative so the new generation talks about interesting topics.

@Pascaln93 haha don't think like that I don't know much more but meeting more is enjoyable. French flow sounds a little misterious. Vietnamse too though

I don't know if you guys do the same but sometimes I ignore the lyrics just focusing on the flow, the rhythm the sound of the voice

Sometimes it's just enough and then i'm scared that the lyrics are too simple

Agreeing with Pascal, I liked Rvssian too! And the first one who raps in the first video, Farruko (?), has such an interesting pronunciation, do you know if that's a dialect?

Yes, in rap the Vietnamese flows a bit bumpy, I'm sure one gets used to it though. Reminds me of Chinese rap, that took me some time and I still can't listen to all of it.
Sounds good! Would love to get more Vietnamese R&B recommendations! 😀

True, French flows as a language anyway so it's perfect for rapping. Here's an old one I still listen to, it's more pop/R&B though:

And since we're at Spanish, here's one of my favorite Papiamento artists (the language is very similar to Spanish):

Yes I do it a lot too! Sometimes you don't need to know the lyrics to enjoy or understand the meaning behind a song. But I'm also scared about the lyrics sometimes ahah.

Ahah it's weird for me to see french songs on this forum. I'm not a fan of french rap (the mainstream artists), but I'm sure in the underground scene there is some good rappers.

Jeon's song is really good! The type of song that makes you wanna dance 😀

Here some others vietnamese songs, I don't want to spam so I'll post just a few.

LK, JustaTee, Emily - Imma Heartbreaker (A classic one! The mv looks so cheap 😀 😀 😀 )

Soobin - Vut Tan (Feat. JustaTee)

Yanbi - Bai Hat Cuoi (Feat. Mr.T & Hang Bingboong)

PB Nation - Ai Bang Anh ( Feat. Bigdaddy)

@Lena well Farruko is from Puerto Rico and they speak there in a different way. But in every country in South America spanish is specific. I regret that sill I can't recognize which is which.

Aha! So that is the Puerto Rican dialect. Thanks for the info, quite enjoying that one.

@Pascal: Yes, Papiamento songs naturally have the island/tropical and latino sounds which makes them upbeat and always puts me in a good mood when I listen to them. 😀

Don't mind the "cheap" look of the video, I actually enjoy those older cheesy-cheapy videos and songs a lot, haha. Can hear how 'Heartbreaker' is a classic. b

Merci for those, Pascal!
