Check out rapper Decipher’s new music video “Angry Asian Man” featuring rapper Manifest and DJ Zo.
In this song, Decipher and Manifest communicate the struggles of what an Asian American might face in American society, including everything from the American Dream to slanted eyes. Watch as a young Decipher sits in a classroom and is forced to encounter the slew of common stereotypes we associate with Asians today. Manifest walks through an urban Korean ethnocentric town, rapping of the struggles he had to endure in rising as an Asian American rapper. This music video seems to be a direct criticism towards generalizations that hinder Asian Americans today.
Decipher is a rising rapper who hails from Philadelphia. Of Korean origin, he aims to give a voice to alienated Asian Americans who struggle to find their place in society.
