APAHM Throwback - Smilez and Southstar

image

A bit of early 2000s nostalgia! Prior to Far East Movement’s recent surge to stardom, Southstar was the only Asian American with the major airplay and reaching the Top 40 list with his track “Tell Me.” Except most people didn’t even know he was Asian.

Southstar set the record straight when he jump on a remix of “Protect Ya Neck”, half of the duo coming from Florida (funny another big Chinese rapper also comes from that state), stating that he is Chinese-Filipino and aside from being half the chart ranked duo also featured along in a couple tracks with the Asian American rap movement at the time.

Though the duo have just about disappeared, their song lives on!
