This event will feature two Chinese rappers (Lil Bag 小包 and Don Dream aka Tang King) from the Iron Mic (the largest MC competition in China), and the founder of the competition himself, Detroit native Dana "Showtyme" Burton. Don Dream (Shanghai) has been a full time rapper since 2003 and took second place in the Iron Mic. He also MCs large events and music festivals, such as EDC Shanghai. Lil Bag (Changsha) has been nominated for "Rap album of the year" three times (Abilu awards) and has 7 full length albums. He also has a history as one of the most famous journalists on Chinese hip-hop.

Our panelists will be talking about the evolution of Chinese hip-hop, moderated by LRCCS Faculty Associate Professor Emily Wilcox. There will also be an opportunity for questions from the audience. The artists will also give a short showcase of their microphone skills, which is a preview for a large scale Chinese hip-hop performance happening in Hart Plaza, Detroit on Saturday, Sept 21st at the Detroit Chinatown Festival.
