Hàng Lâm Trang Anh (born January 14, 1990), known by her stage name Suboi, is a Vietnamese rapper, singer, and songwriter.
Raised in Saigon, where she lives, Suboi is the first Vietnamese female rapper to become successful in her country and is considered Vietnam’s queen of hip hop.
Suboi gained her onstage name during elementary school, “Su” being her nickname at home and “boi” given to her by friends due to her tomboy nature. Growing up, she was a rebellious teenager who “got involved with some bad people” but turned to music for guidance.
She became a fan of hip hop music at the age of 14 and improved her English by listening and rapping along to famous American rappers such as Eminem and Will Smith. Soon after, she began to compose and perform as a rapper in a nu-metal band at 15. She then quickly became a well-recognized and respected rapper from the Vietnamese underground scene.
At the age of 17, her talent was noticed even more so as she accompanied fellow rapper, Rapsoul, to Music Faces’ recording studio to record his track. However, it was her vocals that were noticed by the producer which then led to an invitation for her to join the record label.
Her mainstream recognition grew when she was invited to rap on Vietnamese pop star Ho Ngoc Ha’s chart topping singles “My Apology” and “Girls’ Night” in 2009.
At the age of 20, she debuted her album WALK in August 2010 which it was well received by her loyal fan base and music critics in Vietnam. After leaving her record label Music Faces in 2012, she began her own company, Suboi Entertainment, and is currently finishing her second studio album entitled RUN. The album is expected to be released in late 2013/early 2014 with beats produced by both local Vietnamese producers as well as international producers from the United States and England.
Influenced by Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Linkin Park, Aaliyah, among many others, her versatile rap style ranges from a laid-back delivery similar to Snoop Dogg to a fast paced style like Eminem. Asked about her style, she states “I can’t pinpoint a particular style or artist but I’m a fan of Mos Def, Da Brat, Snoop Dogg, Aaliyah, Foxy Brown and the newest one Azealia Banks. I also enjoy everything nice from Norah Jones, Bob Marley,Erykah Badu, to German artist Kool Savas, Xavier Naidoo … all of these artists’ music have played a very important role in my personal life.” She is able to rap in both English and Vietnamese, making her unique from most rappers in Vietnam. Her lyrics are typically introspective yet outspoken and deal with family, love, social pressures, and daily life in Vietnam.
