Hi, this is my first topic on here, I'm new to this site. I wanted to discuss a music company called 88rising who are quite famous on youtube. They're mostly known for managing Rich Brian, Joji, Keith Ape, Higher Brothers, etc.
Their founder is Sean Miyashiro

Their purpose is to help East Asians find audiences in the US and their channel MOSTLY includes trap, hip hop, EDM music, or any fucking artist who is East Asian and makes good music.
Their channel basically has everything to do with East Asian shit and East Asian culture.
I have no problem with them other than the fact that they seem like a try-hard wannabe Fung Brothers(which someone already said & I agreed w/) when Asia is the LARGEST CONTINENT and is not just about East Asians. If their channel was so much about Asians, then why don't they put Central/South Asians, East Russians, or Middle Easterners on there? And they seem arrogant (& unprofessional) just because they have connections.
This is NOT my pic, it's from the lilymaymac forum -
Lilymaymac was a "model" they hired who is actually a self-hating pure Filipina who's only famous for cat-fishing herself to look half-White, she's also prejudiced and racist to Black people. They are hypocritical for hiring someone like her and these were their replies ^. Trashy and unprofessional... but after that, they unfollowed her and she seems to be off their label now.
Their music is okay (I have a few favorite artists on there) but they seem to mainly jump on the trap rap hype or going for whatever is popular now. I dislike the mumble rappers they put on there because they're talentless! They have good cameras and all, but the video production is cringe as hell. I mean I like WeChat by Higher Brothers, but the music video was just basic and awkward/cringe for the texts -
LMFAO they're nowhere near rap labels like Death Row Records or Aftermath Entertainment.
What I thought was strange was how they made adult models perform sexual acts on Rich Brian (one of their youngest artists) who was 17 at the time. Like wtf, he's a minor. I found it gross, creepy, and full of double standards (not many people said anything about this bc HE'S A BOY and it's TRAP).
The woman on the right is one of their models, I think. Her instagram is @aleshaninja and I think remember searching somewhere before that she's in her late 20s. I don't know because I can't read Japanese.
^ I've also looked at her instagram and she looks full Japanese with iris implant surgery and bleached blonde hair. Seems like another East Asian trying to look White. She also looks cross-eyed, such cheap models that are quite unattractive like Lilymaymac. Lol and is 88rising really an "Asian-promoting" company for hiring models like this? What I'm concerned about is that 88rising condones weird shit like this? LMAO
When I watch their rap music videos, they're just like mainstream trap, they don't treat women as anything more other than sex objects. Trap rap is about "getting something", it's not real rap. Haha, I wonder what else they do with the women behind the scenes.This is all I know about 88rising, what are your opinions?
