Suboi’ Vietnamese name is Hang Lam Trang Anh (born January 14, 1990), known by her stage name Suboi, is a Vietnamese rapper, singer, and songwriter. Raised in Saigon, where she lives, Suboi is the first Vietnamese female rapper to become successful in her country and is considered Vietnam’s queen of hip hop.

She made her debut to America on March 13, 2015, co-headling with Awkwafina, a female rapper from New York. She also made her debut as an actress in CAAMFest 2015, which was held in San Francisco, in “Hollow”, a horror movie directed by Ham Tran. The film became a box office hit and led to her first starring role in 2016’s “Bitcoin Heist”, a Vietnamese heist film also directed by Ham Tran.

In 2015, she was invited to perform an official showcase at South by Southwest (SXSW) becoming the first Vietnamese artist ever to be officially invited by the festival. She performed to rave reviews and in 2016, she was invited back to perform at SXSW for the second year in a row.

By 2016, Suboi was rebuilding her musical career after what she considered a creative lull. She released her new single entitled “Doi” early in the year, emphasizing a “dark beat” which she had been reluctant to release earlier in her career.

In May 2016, Suboi became famous around the world after rapping before former US President Barack Obama in a talk show involving young Vietnamese people. The event drew the attention of international media. CNN even invited her for an interview.
