but Huang's speech and mannerisms seem affected and overly black. I've met a lot of Asian hip-hop heads, and most of them don't come off like Huang (who grew up on a cul-de-sac in the Orlando suburbs). Those who do, tend to be products of inner city neighborhoods, making their personas seem more authentic...to me at least. There's a level of "street" in Huang's persona that comes off as artifice. I'm sure that's who he really is, but he appropriated that. He wasn't raised in it.
