    "Have you eaten yet?"

    "Have you eaten yet?"

    For many of us in Asian families, food—and the question have you eaten yet in particular—is our love language. That was true for second generation Korean American musician Philip Lee, better known by his stage name Old Chingu.

    In this Odd One In teaser, Lee shares what it was like growing up feeling like a misfit living in a different world from his parents, whose affection he craved even if they always made sure he was well fed.

    This is a teaser of Old Chingu’s story, as well as one of the first listens into ROCK PAPER RADIO’s new Odd One In podcast. If you missed the first part of Old Chingu’s story, listen here: Faith and hip hop saved his life.

    Our pilot episode of Odd One In sharing Old Chingu’s journey as an misfit musician and second generation son is coming soon. Subscribe to our newsletter to join our curious crew and to be the first to know when new episodes drop.

    The song you heard in this podcast teaser is Brighter Days by Old Chingu, featuring artist Kudasaibeats.

    Faith and hip hop saved his life

    When Philip Lee was an 18-year-old community college student, he spent a night in jail high on Ecstasy and LSD. He thought he had died and was being punished for his troublemaking teenage ways.

    Lee made a bargain that night that changed his life. Today, Philip Lee is better known by his stage name Old Chingu, which means “old friend” in Korean.

    His music is a blend of hip hop, anti-pop, and faith. It’s an unexpected mix, but it’s working for him. Old Chingu just dropped his first album, and one of his singles recently passed over a million listens on Spotify.

    This is a teaser of Old Chingu’s story, as well as the first listen into ROCK PAPER RADIO’s new ODD ONE IN podcast. Our pilot episode sharing Old Chingu’s journey as an misfit musician and first generation son is coming soon.
