Kris Wu Talks Love of Hip-Hop and 'La La Land'

Billboard caught up with musician and actor Kris Wu recently to pick his brain on a variety of subjects, including hip-hop’s wide reach, to Drake's artistry, and movies he likes.

“Basically, hip-hop music in China, or in Korea even, you get the most influence from here -- from America, basically,” Wu explains. “They do it the best, they’re more experienced in the sound.”

Later on, the 26-year-old rapper also divulges his surprising love for the Oscar-nominated La La Land.

La La Land‘s actually really great; it’s a really good movie,” Wu tells Billboard. “I enjoy that movie a lot. Usually I’m not a fan of musical movies, but this one was definitely something different.”
