Bangkok’s Klong Toey slum has produced some fine rappers in the last couple of years, namely 19Tyger and ElevenFinger. Repping their hood, both rappers released songs about their lives and homes, becoming local sensations—aptly titled “Klong Toey.” In August 2019, VICE met these rappers to see what they’re up to since their first taste of fame, and to go behind the scenes of 19Tyger’s new music video for “Saeng Slum (Slum Light).” We got a look at the neighbourhood, the making of the video, and had a conversation with their producer DJ Henri about what makes these rappers such an exciting new voice in Bangkok.
