Sbazzo & Nasty Ray

Sbazzo and Nasty Ray perform at the Star Live. Though separated by only a few years in age, they represent two periods of hip hop in Beijing; Canada native Sbazzo was a younger member of the formative group of mandarin hip hop, Yinstang. While Nasty Ray, despite my reverence for golden age bumps, emerged soon after, as one of Beijing’s most talented freestyle emcees. October 2009
