Edison Chen

In 2000, at the age of 20, Chen landed a record deal with Emperor Entertainment Group. After a string of successful album releases, he was given the opportunity to produce a hip hop album. His first hip-hop release was in February 2004, called Please Steal This Album backed by MC Yan and Singaporean musician Hanjin Chen. Several singles from the album topped local pop charts. Chen mentioned the difficulty of fitting in in Hong Kong, where it is dominated by cantopop, but said that hip hop has great potential.

He is featured on M-Flo‘s album, Cosmicolor, on the track “LOVE ME, HATE THE GAME” with Chan, Thaitanium and Ryohei Yamamoto.

After Chen’s comeback in late 2009 he began work on his next album titled CONFUSION. The record includes collaborations with well-known local hip hop artists MC HotDog, MC Yan, and Master Chef. Additional collaborations include Sammi Cheng and Jay Chou.
