Sometime late in June of 2011, I received an email from a USC film student named Faroukh Virani. He was a part special course called the Global Exchange Workshop where 7 USC film students were paired with 7 students the Communications University of China in Beijing. Him and his partner, Bobbi Dai, were interested in making a short documentary addressing issues of race and identity in Asian American Hip Hop. Their plan was to interview as many Asian Americans involved with Hip Hop as possible. Long story short, they ended up focusing the documentary on me and my passions as a DJ & educator. I am really happy with the outcome as it gives me a chance to rave about being Chinese American, about being a Chinese American DJ, & about why I’ve chosen education as my main priority in life.
