Haysen Cheng makes history with US rapper Lil B
The duo collab on a new single ‘APEX’
Haysen Cheng [#50 LiFTED 50] has recently dropped a new EP, Angels and Demons, with Shenzhen-based rapper CLUTCH, featuring Bay Area Hip Hop pioneer, Lil B. Widely known in American Hip Hop as the founding figure of the Cloud Rap movement, Lil B has collaborated with the likes of Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, Soulja Boy, and Trippie Redd, among others. With the ‘APEX’ collab, this is the first time that the Hip Hop tastemaker has worked with an Asian artist.
Angels & Demons was released by Haysen Cheng and Clutch, a US-raised rapper from Shenzhen who has been making big waves in Mainland China’s fervent underground Hip-Hop scene. Known for his distinctive delivery and comparisons to artists such as 21 Savage and Nardo Wick, Clutch adds a new dimension to Haysen’s multifaceted style, which includes gruff rhyming and melodic singing. The EP was produced by China Hip Hop Don HARIKIRI and SRR, for his new venture IRIS Creative.
