Some fifteen months ago, I wrote about forming a rap band called Bling Dynasty. The plan was to perform songs such as “Yo Mama Huhu”, “Mi Bad, Yu Bad, Mai Bad” and “Yo! Mae Yo!” But as it turned out, I couldn’t afford the jewelry.
“Bling Dynasty” seems to be catching on in the media (and no, I’m not taking credit for creating this turn of phrase). Timeout magazine in Beijing recently used it for a cover story on the rich in China, as did CNN this week for a piece on luxury goods. The spinoff effects have been good for this blog. Since the CNN story came out, the “Bling Dynasty” section has drawn the most traffic outside of my hompeage.
“Bling Dynasty” – is every Tom, Dick and He Li going to be using it soon?
