Even to this day, it’s difficult to get an overview on the content of this industry, because there are fewer resources in English to learn about it. In order to access C-pop, I have had to search for songs on Chinese streaming platforms and websites.
This has been a challenging but rewarding journey, as I have been exposed to a wide range of genres that I would not have discovered otherwise.
The Chinese government has been supporting the music industry with initiatives to encourages the development of both traditional and contemporary music, as well as the establishment of music-related infrastructure. So I think it’s only a matter of time until the popularity of C-pop will hit off as similarly as K-pop or J-pop have already.
See below for some cool, high quality and enjoyable, rap and hip hop songs.
