About Bohan Phoenix:
Bohan Phoenix was born in China’s Hubei province and immigrated to the US at 11, unable to speak a word of English. He fell in love with hip hop and learned the language quickly by rapping along to anything he could get his hands on. Today Bohan is an anomaly in music in both the American and Chinese music scenes; his inclusion of both Mandarin and English lyrics reflect his dual identity and aim to bridge the gap between the two cultures he calls home. Amidst a nationwide ban on “hip hop culture” in China and an environment where few indie artists thrive, Bohan is redefining what it means to be independent on his own terms.
Bohan’s 2018 past releases tracks produced by Benji B, Ryan Hemsworth, and Chinese underground legend Howie Lee, with features from Dumfboundead and MaSiWei of breakthrough Chinese rap group Higher Brothers. Coupled with sold out NYC and Shanghai release shows, OVERSEAS garnered significant press with premieres via Pigeons & Planes, Ebro on Beats1, Highsnobiety, DJ Booth and Mass Appeal, with coverage on Hypebeast, Bluntiq, Sinovision, South China Morning Post and more. The project is Bohan’s most personal yet, and included a one-of-a-kind music video complete with interactive multi-angle experience that combined tech and his artistry seamlessly. OVERSEAS dissects Bohan’s experience as a multi-hyphenate, international artist building bridges and breaking down boundaries.
Bohan took his big steps forward as an artist in 2017 and 2018, partnering with Beats By Dre, teaming up with notable Chinese streetwear companies, performing at Hong Kong’s famed Clockenflap Music Featival. He previously releasing the JALA EP, with videos premiered by The FADER and 88Rising, and touring all primary and secondary markets in China on the JALA Tour. JALA catapulted Bohan into recognition in the broader hip-hop community, earning a placement on Spotifyʼs Fresh Finds and Apple Musicʼs Hot Tracks, garnered a spotlight on REVOLT, interviews on Bandcamp Daily, Magnetic Mag and a Boiler Room and Fendi performance during New York Fashion Week alongside Migos, 21 Savage and Metro Boomin. Earlier this month, DAZED hailed Bohan as one of four "Chinese Rap Stars About to Go Global," alongside Vava and frequent collaborators Higher Brothers and Howie Lee.
