Wood Dragon and Watermelon Sushi

Aloha, Hip Hapa Homeez!

Are you ready to leave 2023 behind while embracing the incoming Wood Dragon?

While we’re still over a month away from Lunar New Year, we can already feel the excitement of what the Wood Dragon year will bring.

Watermelon Sushi
For us, it’s all about Watermelon Sushi. In fact, our Executive Producer, Lowell Douglas Ing, is a Dragon!

We’re almost ready for editing all the footage that Doug is currently having digitized. Besides adding new hip hop tunes to our decades-old project, we will also be incorporating animation to complete the story.

Follow us and stay updated. We’re everywhere!
