It doesn't take much time walking around Kunming to see that young locals are into hiphop culture: elaborate graffiti tags, murals paying homage to Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur, baggy trousers and NBA jerseys, even a growing breakdancing/b-boy scene.

The MC known as Jumpfish, one of about 10 active MCs in the Kunming area, has cut his first single with Kunming-based American MC Mike Wind. The track, "Upwind Jumpoff", was produced and mixed by Kris Ariel. Click here to download.
