Credit to Beijing Cream for introducing me to the The 党 Dynasty, westside China’s latest laowai talent. Made up of friends Bro西来 (Matt Allen) and 他马特老外 (Matt Sheehan), the duo produced the following “We livin in Xi’an” video, which is as ridiculous as it is fun.

Straight off the streets of Xi’an, bilingual rap duo The 党 Dynasty lay down the hottest bilingual club thumper to come out of Xi’an since the Tang Dy-Nasty!

Bro西来 (Matt Allen) and 他马特老外 (Matt Sheehan) dedicate this track to the 8,467,837 Chinese people and handful of foreigners who make Xi’an the flyest city on the Loess Plateau!

我们来自西安/We Livin in Xi’an

We livin in XI-AN, XI-AN, XI-AN……
Thing bout Xi’an, when you first step off that train,
cars be swervin out they lanes,
but we ready for that, we game.

And we hittin’em back,
two 老外 headin’ the pack,
matta fact we got the buns,
now where my 老外 at who’d rather observe than interact?

Back to my face it don’t reflect on all of the Chinese I know,

k-ktv is fake-fake records,
the headcount’s in the millions,
and no migrants get respected

If you check 1-2 my word of advice to you,
is learn the tongue,
just say what you got to say,
if that don’t work then just play dumb.

If you a bus or cab driver, noodle grinder, scooter rider,
or you gotta hand out flyers,
then just own it,
but then if you a baijiu sippin, restaraunt spitting,
belly itchin, Gucci wearin bitch,
I’ma know it when i see it,

It’s bigga than XI-AN, XI-AN, XI-AN…..

Who drivin this cab?
if he don’t slow down he gon’ kill us all

那个don’t think droppin one 你好
get you local prices, cuz it’s not,
laowai speak a lil’ Chinese and think he’s hot,
talkin bout how many dishes he got.

man all you rich folks act the same,
that black Audi? That’s lame.
Mao’s on Hongbaos? A shame.
Social climbing? Fast paced.
Big-ass savings rate? THAT’S FACE.

听不懂 me though
These training schools sling my skin like dope,
I could be talkin out my ass,
and still be treated like the pope.

You rather have a lexus, or justice?
That QQ or substance?
A breadcar, a beamer or freedom?

那个那个like me don’t China-hate,
just stay awake,
this is real 中国
and it don’t stop till they push the hutong off the block

We call it XI-AN, XI-AN, XI-AN….

Qujiang got that crazy shit,
Tang Dy-Nasty with a DQ in it.

PRC got that crazy shit,
man hella fast trains?
I don’t even trip in it.

(What a laowai gonna do?)


PRC got that crazy shit,
man 40 stories,
but nobody lives in it.

那个 please…
