Chinese Government Sponsored Rap Group Releases Anti-THAAD Song

Just when you thought the anti-THAAD silliness in China couldn’t get any stupider along comes this:

A rap group backed by China’s government is warning South Korea in a music video that “you’re going too far” with the deployment of a U.S. missile defense system, as Beijing seeks to bring its state-supported cultural forces to bear in the international dispute.

A member of the group CD REV said government officials worked with them on the video and helped to promote it on foreign websites, many of which are blocked in China by official censors emboldened by the ruling Communist Party’s warnings against foreign “cultural infiltration.”

In the song, group members chant that “about THAAD we say no, no, no,” a reference to the U.S. Army’s missile defense system formally known as Terminal High Altitude Area Defense.

Later in the song, they refer to South Korea, saying, “this time, kid, you’re going too far” and “your big brother’s annoyed,” a nod to China’s view of itself as the pre-eminent political and economic power in northeast Asia.  [Stars & Stripes]

  1. “A rap group backed by China’s government”

    unamused Really?!

  2. TTANSLATION:

    you sould be mad
    ’cause you got the THAAD
    can’t say why, but it must be bad

    cozy up to China
    and it would be rad
    stayin’ with America will make you sad

    listen to your mom
    and listen to your dad
    you don’t want to have that THAAD

    only a cad
    would follow that fad
    so if you have it, you will be had

    take those things
    off the launchpad
    and you will be glad

    life will be better without that THAAD

    VERDICT: Chinese suck at writing rap

  3. With more people than any other country, the Chinese are really working overtime to be this lame.

  4. South Korea would not need THAAD if China would keep their feral dog in check…
