BuzzFeed has made a list of "22 Dumb Rap Lyrics About Asian People."
"These lyrics tend to collapse all Asian identities — the literal billions of them — into one," BuzzFeed says of its list. "Often, they promote the sexual fetishization of Asian women. Here are a couple memorable trespasses, ranging from incomprehensible to wildly offensive to just plain corny."
Kanye West appears on this list. "Chasin' love, lot of bittersweet hours lost," West, who appears on the list more than one time, raps on "I'm In It." "Eatin' Asian pussy, all I need is sweet & sour sauce."
Drake's "Over My Dead Body" also makes the list. "I want it all and then some," he rhymes on the track. "Shout out to Asian girls, let the lights dim some."
Drake's fellow YMCMB act, Nicki Minaj, also appears on the list. "When I was a geisha, he was a Samurai," Nicki raps on "Your Love." "Somehow I understood him when he spoke Thai."
Chingy also lands on this list.
"I like 'em Black, White, Puerto Rican or Haitian," Chingy rhymes on "Balla Baby," "Japanese, Chinese, or even Asian."
