This project begins with the song Uzutrap, featuring Yetti Pants. “That encapsulates what I want to do with all the projects. It’s giving a voice to people like my parents or any other first generation immigrant parent that moved to America not knowing the native English language.”
He wants listeners to remember that each person is more nuanced than they may imagine. Uzuhan says that since each person is made in the image of God, they deserve to be treated with respect and not be put into a box, to not be confined to stereotypes.
“Some of the stereotypes of Koreans [is that we are] studious, very passive, very quiet, very docile. Thinking that I can do Kung Fu.” He filmed a music video for “Uzutrap,” recording it partly in his home, and partly at places along a road called Buford Highway in Atlanta, Georgia.
“It is the cultural heartbeat of Atlanta. There are so many immigrant businesses on Buford Highway and it is so beautiful and I wanted to film in front of it because I go there so much and I love that there are so many mom-and-pop shops there.”
