Namgyal Yeshi currently resides in New York City where he is also an active member of the Tibetan Youth Congress of NY and NJ. He was introduced to the lyrical power of rap by Beastie Boys, Adam Yauch. Encouraged to tell the story of Tibet while spreading awareness of the Tibetan cause, Namgyal had introduced a rising tide in political activism in the form of rap art. Born in Kham, Tibet, Namgyal happily reminices on his childhood growing up within a traditional nomadic family. At the same time, he recounts on the presence of heavy Chinese influence and iron fist rule in Tibet. The inspiration for his rap tracks comes from the prospect of an independent Tibet with justice restored. His tracks lyrically illustrates the injustice Tibetan people under Chinese rule endures on a daily basis. The catchy intrumentals and rap verses become rap pleas. Serving as a haunting reminder of the endangered Tibetan culture and population. It is then that it becomes clear that Namgyal's ultimate message to his audience is to stand together for Tibet. This is the first Tibetan Political Rap album made.
