Actor. Musician. Producer. Entrepreneur. Fashion Icon. The multi-faceted, multi-talented Edison Chen is back on track and backed by Hong Kong hip hop royalty
Signing his first record deal at the age of 20, Edison Chen has spent the succeeding 16 years in the spotlight. Chen’s style and focus evolved from a pretty boy media darling, singing saccharine-drenched ballad pop, to scornful rapper, spitting edgy, defiant hip hop, over the years. Perhaps as a reflection of his volatile relationship with mainstream media, perhaps as a nod to the Western world he departed as a youngster.
Although born in Vancouver, Canada and speaking English as his mother language, Chen raps and sings effortlessly in both Mandarin and Cantonese, adding multi-linguicism to his arsenal of talents.
Edison and 4pk show no signs of letting Chen’s bygone pop sensibilities raise their collective air-brushed, over-styled head in their live show, delivering deep, powerful beats as a foundation for the 4PK MCs to spill blazing hot fire over.
“3 Corners displays (Chen’s) incredible talents in hip hop, releasing three albums in Mandarin, Cantonese and English respectively, his genius alleviating his notoriety and conspicuousness.” – Douban
Chinese netizens have dubbed 4PK “Wu-Tang Clan meets Drake” and “L’il Wayne meets Eminem”, which displays both their wide range of influences and incredibly high standard they’ve been held to.
