When I was in Shanghai a couple of years ago, there would always be these guys who walked around with these long portable grills. They’d setup shop on a street corner and grill these little kebabs that looked pretty gross. It wasn’t until the end of my trip when a friend told me that they sold weed. Check out this link about weed in China.
I’m not too clear on the drug situation in China. I know that people use ecstasy, but only because I walked into club where everyone was on that stuff. But other than that, I assumed that it was a pretty big crime to have it. Which is why I was so surprised to hear this song: 大妈 from 天王星 (as an added bonus, there’s a guy that sounds like Lil’ Jon on this track). EDIT: Or, check out the MV which is titled the cheapest looking MV in all of China by the person who posted it.
天王星 seems to be more popular than most groups – with their weekly radio shows, appearance on TV shows and higher profile concerts – and that usually leads to more scrutiny from the Censors.
Anyways, here’s another weed-related track from MC茶米 a Taiwanese rapper. You can also check out my anywhere.FM profile for other songs.
