The Rise of Vietnamese Hip-hop

In Vietnam, over a few short decades, hip hop pioneers like Vietmax, Wowy, Ha Le, and Suby One have taken the scene from a niche interest to a driving cultural force. We meet these four in the studio of B-Boy/visual artist Vietmax to talk about the challenges they’ve faced, the community they’ve built, and the inspiration they’ve taken from each other along the way. Theirs is a community that has strengthened their craft, broken down barriers, and created a form of hip hop which is positive, inclusive, and distinctly Vietnamese.
