Is the Japanese a rap? It is yet early to be surprised. The thing that Japan is one of the countries that are considerably taking root the rap culture even among the world is not known well. The start of the thing might be a moment when 1st album of RUNDMC was dropped to Tokyo maybe. The appearance of RUNDMC was caught very shockingly in the country of this Orient though there were a few people who were listening to a former rap, too. Actually, even for RUNDMC, only some fashionable people listened to it, that level of the movement...

However, as you all aware, this lovely format arose in New York spreads to Japan and accomplishes its original evolution afterwards.
It is a wonderful thing. Tokyo..Shibuya..became sacred ground for DJs where provide the record of all over the world, a large amount of rhea sound source, people say there is no record that could not be found at here (though they seem to have been very expensive. )
It would have been a mountain of the treasure if it saw from DJ all over the world. It seemed to unfold here and there in Shibuya that DJ in the US find the rhea board not found in the US and did the finding rapture dancing wildly in Shibuya.
The Robo-chu who we introduce this time is a rapper kept acting for Shibuya as his hometown.

He is a robot in man, i say in the beginning. He keeps insisting on this. It is impossible to introduce all anecdotes of he numerous here but let's teach the one of the story describing his body is made of the metal though. We were chatting with some friends. And, the chat ended, he stood up. Something metallic quality made the sound then and it fell on the floor. It was a "Key" of something. One of the friends said "Robo, you dropped a key, It felt from Robo" Robo says "No, it was not my key" "I did not know such a key" ... Picking up "Robo and the key dropped", I have to say the key was from different dimension, break into Robo's body as a element, then turned out again from his body as a material. From that time, friends surroundings came to believe he is a robot. The robot is wrapping it in Japan. Terrible country?
It hears very much imagination-swells though neither the skill nor the style of the rap of the Robo-chu are transcendence or state-of-the-art. "Without feeling restrained by the style", his motto, has been evolved on his own way and came to produce very airy music. As for the robot made in Japan, the imagination is perfectly programmed.

When did you start rap?
"I think I was about 21 years old. Knowing the rap with RUNDMC after all first, and begun my own when 1st of The Beastie Boys goes out."
Was there a thing like the rap scene in Japan in those days?
"There was not, and doesn't exist. Only the guy of new music nuts or people linked to NEWWAVE came to bite it, still more, there were definitely no one who rap by himself in Osaka.

"If you rap by yourself, that was already awesome, that kind of ages. Exactly the story of old cock and young cock."
He was lived in Osaka at that time and had been also done the theatrical comedy group before starting the rap. By the way, Osaka is a region in Japan where comedy has pervading among people. Afterwards, he starts acting as DASSEN3 by three people who add MC of "Changeable man who put on T-shirt of PUBLIC ENEMY" and 1 another in the theatrical company. It was a group to which the unit also freely jumped over the boundary of comedy and HIPHOP happen only in Osaka. (They are dormant now. )
"Therefore, I was not considering about HIPHOP well. Then gradually, I began to notice the wonderful of HIPHOP, afterwards, i just got into it. Everything was new to me in all sense."
It had to be Genesis of the rap in Japanese, and to be considerably a repetition of feeling and the experiment.
As a general rule, Japanese is said that it will not put it easily on the rhythm compared with English. I wonder how the consideration was of that part .
"To tell the truth, I do not consider about Japanese so carefully. "
"Lyric is not like like the word that I am usually speaking, if I say so, however, written language does not either fit to that. I say I naturally look up at the word like the middle even I do not understand well by the process of putting it on rhythm. "
His Lyric is not expressed in shape with a comprehensible clear
message.
It is the kind of the effort to lead the listened side to wherever they like by either calling repeatedly various words of a certain image.
Originally, Japanese language allows multiple way of expressions toward single object, however, on the other hand, it also has a nature that single word represent several "subtle" meanings, too. For instance, the Japanese word [Karma] in English means [life], [destiny] or could be [fate] but none of those perfectly express the original word in Japanese.
If the Japanese asks ten people this word for instance, we may expect ten different answers come back.
In the end, it is considerable sense word as a nature Japanese language.
He invented original Japanese a style that made the best use of the Japanese characteristic to its maximum.

He says. "How to make the rap in Japanese has been understood finally in recent."

"After all, what become a conclusive evidence when making rap is if it could be pleasant when I actually rap or not.
From the creation stage, i do imagine the scenery I rap in front of the audience. What word is on earth rapped, can I and the other party become pleasant? that is the most important for me, and I think that this respect is to tell the truth different from a surrounding rapper. I mean, I am telling what kind of man I am, and asking who are you guys are through the rap. This type of communication is the most interesting to me."
Then, let's expand the talk from him to the entire scene here and ask about.
Now, a Japanese rap that started from scratch has been grown up and subdivided to various styles.

Now, a Japanese rap that started from scratch has been grown up and subdivided to various styles.

""There is no layer where orthodox rap is done in Japan, either in layer where they play far out freestyle or play the current boom."
"I think the cause to be related to "geekhead character" that exists in a Japanese root though it could be a little flexible. It is like listen deeply in a narrow area. Even there might be a handicap existing because of the language, I do not think we are abehind in terms of ""listening deeply"" compare to the other country. I mean there are in a word, a lot of addictions for rap rather than the rap fan."
When I go to the record shop, Categoraiz of the record shelf of the record shop is soooooo subdivided. By looking at of those, i again think Japanese people is nerd. And I don't think it's a bad thing."
Then, let's return speaking to the Robo-chu himself again.
"I will be positively meeting with various people in the future.and fully put out the works."
"Seeming like I do not become better at the rap any more...haha. And I think it is good enough."

I hear that the Robo-chu is scheduling the new work to be recorded within year 2005.

"I will be glad if people listen to it under various situations. Imaging my music tied together with many kinds of scenes make me so exited, that's the biggest motivation for me to create music. "

Not sure how his new works will be but he says he's gonna have a number all done by himself, including the tracking.
House-recorder Robo-chu.
It is quite true that he also is on of the lovely music nerd, in the end.
