The Chinese hip-hop group that transcended international borders and infiltrated club speakers in 2017 with songs like 'Made In China' and 'Black Cab' just dropped a new music video and announced the release of their sophomore album Five Stars, available February 22. In a preview of what's to come, the track 'Open it Up' gives a nod to the old school days of the genre, with a classic low-beat back track accompanying a fuzzy, black and white parade through the streets of San Francisco.

With mini cop cars, mosh pits and dragon dances, the Chinatown scenery only stands to further cement the group's positioning between Eastern and Western culture, having sold out their second North American tour last year and continuing to rise to critical acclaim here in China. They rounded out the year by releasing the single '16 Hours' through their label 88rising, referring to the flight time between the US and the PRC, which will also appear on Five Stars.
