Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m Dumbfoundead. I’m from Koreatown Los Angeles, and I make videos on YouTube and songs for the world.
What inspires you to rap?
What inspires me to rap? A lot of girls—women are a huge inspiration in my life. I grew up with my mom and sister and, you know, have been in relationships. You know, women are a metaphor for life.
As an Asian American MC, do you feel like you have a responsibility to the Asian American community?
Yeah, definitely, definitely. I think it’s more than just performing just for an Asian community—it’s about representing the Asian culture outside of that, you know what I mean. I never want to be stuck in a comfort zone and just reach out to a certain group of people. I rather perform for non-Asians because I can actually share the stories of the Asian community with them.
