Publisher's summary

Please note: This memoir is for mature audiences only. It features sexual content, adult language and themes, and brings da ruckus. Discretion is advised. Too hot to handle? Go to the clean version

Sophia Chang is a badass of the music industry. As the daughter of Korean immigrants in predominantly white suburban Vancouver, she grew up shunning the “model minority” myth. Armed with a fierce sense of independence, she moved to New York City and infiltrated the world of hip-hop, yet remained mostly in the shadows of the artists she supported. With her debut memoir, Sophia Chang is finally ready to grab the mic for herself. This inspiring story spans her adventures in the music business, her path to becoming an entrepreneur, as well as her candid accounts of marriage, motherhood, marginalization, and martial arts.  

For decades, she worked behind-the-scenes helping remarkably talented men tell their stories, including rap and R&B stars like the Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, GZA, and ODB, as well as A Tribe Called Quest, Raphael Saadiq, and D’Angelo. As an A&R rep in her mid-20s, her world underwent a seismic shift upon encountering a formidable group of nine MCs known as the Wu-Tang Clan. That union would send her on a transformational odyssey, leading her to an enigmatic Shaolin monk who would become her partner, an enduring kung fu practice, two children, and a reckoning with what type of mother, lover, and woman she ultimately wanted to be.  

In this Audible Original by Hello Sunshine, Sophia Chang drops knowledge about her motivating journey that took her from record label boardrooms to the Wudang mountains as she built a life shattering biases about Asian women. To this day, she declares she was “raised by Wu-Tang”, and she brings da ruckus as the baddest bitch in the room. At last, her memoir shows the world exactly what that means.
