The Rap of China

Anybody been watching this Chinese reality show called "The Rap of China"? Jin killed it on stage but supposedly got eliminated when Taiwan's MC Hot Dog complained by the amount of English being used.

And Jin should really take off his silly mask. We all know it's him.

I'm curious, what are communists allowed to rap about? I can't imagine it's only shown in Taiwan, so it must be pretty heavily controlled for the mainland.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

Show is from mainland China but most of the hosts and judges are from Taiwan with the exception of Kris Wu. Apparently the show is all on YouTube for overseas viewers. I only checked out bits of it for Jin. And Kris Wu's "你有freestyle嗎?" is making him sound really stupid. People are mocking him with that quote.

You'll appreciate their dedication to copying others when aliens invade and China copies alien tech so humanity can fight back. :razz:

So it turns out that rap doesn't really work for them after all:

China has banned hip-hop culture and actors with tattoos from appearing on television.

The country’s top media regulator — the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of the People’s Republic of China (SAPPRFT) — now “specifically requires that programs should not feature actors with tattoos [or depict] hip hop culture, sub-culture (non-mainstream culture) and dispirited culture (decadent culture),” Sina, a Chinese news outlet, reports.

Gao Changli, director of the administration’s publicity department, outlined four “Don’t” rules on Friday:

Absolutely do not use actors whose heart and morality are not aligned with the party and whose morality is not noble
Absolutely do not use actors who are tasteless, vulgar and obscene
Absolutely do not use actors whose ideological level is low and have no class
Absolutely do not use actors with stains, scandals and problematic moral integrity
The ban follows the removal of the prominent rapper GAI from Hunan TV’s Singer, a hit competition show. Clips of GAI, whose real name is Zhou Yan, were also removed from China Hunan TV’s official Youtube Channel, but no official explanation has been given. He does however appear in the show’s trailer:

...

Wang Hao, aka PG One, another well-known rapper, was forced to apologize earlier this month after one of his songs, “Christmas Eve,” was criticized for promoting drug culture and insulting women.

Rapper Mao Yanqi, aka VaVa, was cut from the variety show Happy Camp, according to Tecent News. Music by Triple H, an influential underground rapper, has also been removed from major streaming sites. And a contestant on the show Super Brian, which is not hip-hop related, even had his hip-hop style necklace blurred out.

Chinese social media has responded angrily to the ban.

“SARPPFT is so trashy! They didn’t want to give Chinese hip pop singers any chance of survival! we can go back to ancient times,” wrote one user on Weibo — China’s equivalent of Twitter.

“How can a government with high culture have such childish logic?” asked another.
