Straight outta Chengdu, China, the Higher Brothers are making Sichuan hip-hop a global sensation. It all started when the four friends spent a winter holed up in a tiny bedroom writing songs about their beloved childhood cartoon, “Haier Brothers.” The guys began to mix trap beats with local dialects, Mandarin and broken English to create a singular style—one that caught the attention of New York-based music label, 88Rising. In this Great Big Film, we kick it inside the studio where “Brothers” Masiwei, Psy.P, Dzknow and Melo make music that’s impressed the likes of Migos and Playboi Carti.
