In Search of Khmer Hip Hop Part 2

Down at the CD shop, what do I find?

Why look, some Khmer Hip Hop, from ‘Galaxy CD’.


from the barely legible label (click for larger image):
Cover Design: N.P. Sophea
Tel: 012 865 649
E-mail: (looks like)

Galaxy CD#135E St 19 S Che Chumnas
K. Daun Penh (North To Wat Saravan)

Curiously, the lyrics on the back all look like songs from Khmer-American rapper Prach‘s earlier efforts.

What’s sad is that for all the money, hours and effort involved in copying and distributing this CD, they probably could have rented a studio and cut a track or two. If they had the confidence or interest, that is.
