Higher Brothers
"The current breakout stars of the Chinese hip-hop
world” (The New York Times), Higher Brothers are defining
what it means to be Chinese in an increasingly globalized,
internet-fueled world. Recently named ‘2018 Hip Hop Artist Of
The Year’ by Netease — one of China’s top music streaming
platforms — and featured extensively by international
media like CNN, Vice News, Rolling Stone, Los Angeles
Times, and more, Higher Brothers are already the most
heralded rappers in Chinese history. Hailing from Chengdu in
mainland China, members Masiwei, Psy.P, Dzknow, and Melo are
proving that “language barriers aren’t an issue and all that matters
is the music” (Pigeons & Planes).

Higher Brothers’ upcoming studio album Five Stars is positioned to
be the biggest Chinese hip-hop album in history. The first and
only China-born rap group to achieve international success,
the Higher Brothers’ sound mirrors their high-energy
hybridized spirit, combining simple English hooks with
infectious Mandarin flows to create melodic bops and
explosive bass-kicking bangers. A true global crossover
album, Five Stars boasts notable collaborations, including
production from K Swisha, Cookin Soul, Joji, Richie
Souf, FrancisGotHeat and features from Denzel Curry,
Ski Mask The Slump God, J.I.D, Soulja Boy, Guapdad4000,
KOHH, NIKI, and Rich Brian. With their sophomore album on the
way and more unexpected collaborations coming in the new year,
“Higher Brothers’ success story is more than a tale about four
kids “making it”— it’s emblematic of a bigger trend towards
globalization in hip-hop” (GQ).
