Higher Brothers Tickets
Higher Brothers: brotherhood beyond the Great Wall
Chengdu gave birth to the first Chinese hip-hop group to take to the international stage: the Higher Brothers. Even though getting through the censorship of China is a difficult feat, this young group of rappers pushed through with their music and made it beyond the local music scene. Despite their limited exposure to Western rap, they developed their unique blend of rhythm for songs that celebrate Chinese culture. Buy or sell Higher Brothers tickets on StubHub and experience the music that went beyond the Great Wall.
Higher Brothers: made in China
The Higher Brothers is a hip-hop group notable for being the front-runner in Chinese rap culture. It is formed of MaSiWei, Melo, Psy.P, and DZknow, who all started out in different groups before they began creating rap music under the name Higher Brothers. The name was based on the title of their first successful single, "Higher Brothers", which pertains to a Chinese electronics company logo. They decided to adopt it as a group name and were all set to sign and succeed in the rap music scene. The record label 88rising, which caters to Asian-American artists, had them signed quickly. Their music may be mostly about Chinese culture, but their musical inspirations are 50 Cent, J. Cole and Migos. Their songs in Sichuanese and Mandarin became popular despite language differences, as the appeal of their music goes far beyond lyrics and has gained fans even among Western audiences. This kind of music should not be missed as a live performance – getting a Higher Brothers album is not the same as the experience of getting Higher Brothers tickets and watching them perform on stage.
Higher Brothers tours and milestones
Higher Brothers gained their first public screen time on 88rising’s YouTube channel, where they performed "Black Cab" from their debut album with the same title. This song popularised the rap group together with "Made in China", "Franklin" and "We Chat". The success of their songs earned them their first Higher Brothers tour through Asia in 2017 together with Rich Brian and Joji. The following year they went to North America for the "Journey to the West Tour" that aimed to promote their EP of the same title. When Higher Brothers tour abroad they intend to meet their target audience, not just through lyrics but also through music that you can dance to and feel at the same time. This seals their standing on the international stage. Their modern rap influence mixed with rich Chinese culture creates unique music that’s familiar enough for the audience to readily embrace. Don’t miss the chance to watch them live on stage, but grab your Higher Brothers tickets on StubHub and experience the perfect blend of Chinese culture and Western rap.
