Taiwan's downtempo hip-hop pioneer

This rapper/songwriter was an instant sensation on the internet.  After joining Kao! Inc., an independent label, Soft Lipa easily stood out and became the most recognizable voice of the company.  If MC HotDog is the Jay-Z of Taiwanese rap, then Soft Lipa is no doubt Snoop Dogg, using his melodic rap to illustrate the intricacies of life.  Soft Lipa's songs are as soulful as Chet Baker and as poetic as T.S. Eliot.
