  • Lee Hom, it's so good to see you! Thank you. (WL: It's great to see you again.) Thanks for coming in. Your music, a blending of east west. You also sort of embody this mix. How would you describe your style?

  • WL: Um, actually I call my style -- and I hope I don't offend any of the viewers -- but I call it "chinked out."

  • LH: I'm glad you said it and I didn't.

  • WL: Well, the "chinked out" style is a school of hip hop - that's the way I like to think of it - that incorporates Chinese elements and sounds. Uh, I started it off in my last album called Shangrila. And this album incorporated the music of ethnic minorities, in China, in Tibet, in Mongolia, Shenzhen. There's 50 some odd --some people say 54, 55 different ethnic minorities -- tribal music. It's a -- beautiful and original to Chinese culture. And this new album called Heroes of Earth incorporates Peking Opera and Quen-chu which are thousand year old traditions that are also unique to Chinese culture. Very unique instrumentation, costumes, singing styles. And it invigorates hip hop music. I don't think anyone has ever done this before in hip hop, in the hip hop world…..

Chinked out l.jpg

  • “Chink” is an insult word from an earlier era, when Caucasians in North America often referred to Chinese people as “chinks”, and yes, it was and is a slur word. But now an “ABC” singer from Taiwan — that’s “American-Born Chinese” person, or ABC, sometimes called ABT for American-Born Taiwanese — named Lee Hom Wang (stage name just Lee Hom) is releasing an album called Unparalleled Hero that calls itself “chinked-out” music.

  • Apparently, Chinked-Out is a new musical style created by Lee Hom himself, which blends Chinese traditional music with Western hip-hop rhythms.

  • Wonder what the PC police will say about this new term?

  • Then, I coined the term “chinked-out”. Derived from the historically derogatory racial slur “chink”, used to out-down Chinese people, “chinked-out” repossesses the word, turns its negative connotationsupside-down, and uses them as material to fuel the new sound of this music. The term describes an effort to create a sound that is international, and at the same time, Chinese. — Wang Lee Hom
