Vietnamese-Australian Rapper, Chong Ali, releases bustling new single today entitled ‘Yeah Bruss’ – an ode for the under represented voices for Brisbane’s southside suburbs and the lifestyle that exists as a results of housing generations of immigrants and refugees.
It’s not new for an artist to gain inspiration from the area they live in and as a Vietnamese-Australian himself this track is an unique contemplative insight into the rich and diverse ecosystem of cross-cultural living that Australia is so proud of. It’s a message emphasised through the music video released today, where the viewer is taken on a personal tour with Chong around the Brisbane southern suburbs he knows and loves.
Having played festival stages such as BIGSOUND, Woodford Folk Festival, Valley Fiesta and BrisAsiawith rap groups EMR and Pistola Ave, Chong Ali has gained recognition as a fierce live emcee. This lead to his 2017 debut as a solo artist, with single ‘Rose Coloured Tint’ nominated as a finalist in the prestigious 2018 Queensland Music Awards.
Today, Chong Ali rises to the next level with bouncy upbeat track, blending the infectious melody with compelling textural layers. With clever delivery of rhythmic vernacular and infectious flow, this single successfully explodes in the right direction, bridging the gap between hip-hop and Asian culture.
