(AllHipHop Music) Multi-talented Asian rap artist Soi Sauce has exploded onto the scene with her unique brand of trap rap and dance as she delivers an infectious track and visual for her latest single "Poppin'" ft. Rich The Kid.
A native of Hainan, China, the beautiful 23-year-old Los Angeles resident debuted onto the Hip Hop scene after winning several national TV dance competitions throughout Asia. The dynamic new trap star is also now part of the cast of a new TV Show in production slated to air this fall.
TV is not new territory for this former professional dancer as she has been featured in numerous videos for some of the world’s best recording artists including Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, & Enrique Iglesias to name a few.
“Hip Hop is in my blood,” said the exotic rising star. “At the age of 5, I loved Missy Elliot, Tupac, and Lil Kim. Hip Hop has a big influence on Asia, and I fell in love with the vibrant positivity Hip Hop brought to our community, it is very inspiring to the people of my country.”
With Soi’s die hard love for rap music, she set her sights on being an international Hip Hop star. After being in the United States for less than 2 years and knowing very little English, she enrolled in ESL & music theory classes, and within a few short months, she began to write and record her own music.
After being discovered by stalwart executive producer & talent manager Micah White, who'd previously worked with award-winning music, film and TV company Greyology Inc (AR Rahman, Slumdog Millionaire, Couples Retreat, 127 Hours, XFactor, Leona Lewis, etc.), Soi Sauce signed with Micah’s Level Up Management, and rapidly began to evolve into the star we are seeing now, with drawing inspiration from [and comparisons to] female Hip Hop legends and veterans such as Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj, and drawing comparisons to Hip Hop's current people's champ, Cardi B.
Ingeniously, Soi Sauce merged her Asian culture with trap music which has inspired a genre of her own that she refers to as "Trapinese".
“Trap music resonated with me as an artist more than any other genre," said Soi. “In my eyes, T.R.A.P. means Truly Realizing Anything’s Possible."
The word TRAP has a significant meaning for Soi Sauce as she feels it represents the way she views life and how she hopes the message in her music will inspire people and her fans.
"Poppin'" is sure to be a summer smash and is available on all platforms 7/26/19.
Soi Sauce’s journey flying almost 10,000 miles from China to pursue her dreams in America should inspire us all.
