China drops English propaganda rap
The track was released by Xinhua News, China's official state-run press agency, and was delivered by a Chinese rapper called Su Han.
BEIJING — China seeks to appeal to the masses by releasing English rap song promoting the CCP's annual meeting, reports The Guardian.
It's no secret, China is very much eager to show off and with the Chinese communist party's annual meeting right around the corner, they're taking their propaganda to a whole new level.
They decided they'd propagate their message to the entire world this year via a bizarre rap song titled, 'Two Sessions': To the World from China'.
The track was released by Xinhua News, China's official state-run press agency, and was delivered by a Chinese rapper called Su Han
The video is a weird combination of stock footage-like videos mixed with shots of Su Han rapping what seems to be lyrics directly translated from Chinese using Google.
He talks about how the 'joy of success is like a weekend car ride around the pool' and how he will school us in 'Chinese manners'.
The rap song tackles some real-life issues though, like poverty. In Su Han's words, 'Poverty's such a travesty, a clumsy tragedy.' True that Su Han, true that.
However, not all his lyrics are that… eloquent. At one point he urges us to 'Eject all the rapaciousness like shaking off nephrolithiasis.'
For those who don't have their medical lingo on check, nephrolithiasis is the medical term for kidney stones. So yeah he's telling us to shake off our rapaciousness (?) like we would shake off our kidney stones.
