For Journey to the West, producer T. Perk sources his samples from cassettes of folk songs he rescued from various traditional Chinese markets, and surrounds them with thick, head-banging drums, while Touch weaves a slick narrative that continues from one song to the next. His re-telling of Chinese folk hero Sun Wukong’s tortured life—substituting Wukon’s mission to find the Sutra with a mission to find true hip hop through self discovery—eventually culminates in an end battle and a surprise conclusion that rewards those with enough patience to take in this hip hop audio book from front to back.
