The Misadventures of MC Tingbudong (2018) is an 8-part mandarin-language webseries that chronicles the Found Sound China Residency program, and explores the current Chinese hip hop, electronic and trap music scene. Lots has changed in China since I was a Fulbright scholar studying hip hop a decade ago back in 2008 and first earned the name MC Tingbudong - from social media and WeChat, to Rap of China, trap music and my own development as an artist.
