Wednesday Video Diversion: “Beijing Guoan” by Nasty Ray

To get you past hump day, here’s a song and video by local Beijing rapper, Nasty Ray. The song’s done to the “Empire State of Mind” beat, I’ve always loved this beat and am a big fan of Jay-Z, but I cannot stand New York City, and the song is an anthem to that city. This Beijing version is one I can definitely get behind, so if you’re a Guoan fan, you’ve got to check it out and, if not, watch the video and just enjoy the spirit of what a matchday is like at Worker’s Stadium.

Brandon Chemers aka B. Cheng aka A Modern Lei Feng – is a name which may be familiar to many in the Chinese blogosphere. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief for Wild East Football and is one of the lonely souls writing about Chinese football in English for the last 10 years. Chemers' credentials are second to none – his former blog focused not only on the fortunes of his beloved Beijing Guoan FC, but a multitude of other aspects of Beijing life. He’s deservedly built a reputation in the Chinese blogosphere as an insightful observer of not only Chinese football, but also the wider picture of life in modern China and its many layers. For WEF, beyond writing about Guoan, he often focuses on fan culture and the business of Chinese football.
