Bohan Phoenix & Friends - The Overseas Tour
aka Mr. Overseas, aka "Too Foreign For Here Too Foreign For Home" is part of the new tide of rising Chinese rappers. Born in Hubei but raised in New York, it was during his regular returns to China to perform that he started adding Chinese to his rapping. Hits like "JALA" and his collaboration "No Hook" with Higher Brothers brought him to the attention of the world, and he's been working hard to develop his sound. He's unapologetic about his background, looking for new, often tongue-in-cheek ways to add Chinese elements to his music, but his uncompromising lyrics and fresh sound keeps it from sounding tacky. He's touring China to support his new EP, with a stop at Arkham. Doors open at 10pm, Bohan on at 11.30pm.
