VIRAL 《不要出门》 is an EP and virtual world created by black bilingual mandarin- language rapper MC Tingbudong.
Written as a conversation between China and Black America, VIRAL 《不要出门》 is produced in collaboration with artists across the Chinese and Asian diaspora. Told through six interactive musical experiences, it is a re-imagining of an era of pandemic and protest as a pirated video game sent from a revolutionary future.
Explore the metaverse of MC Tingbudong in this choose-your-own-path virtual adventure created from hours of personal footage, news clips, virtual reality videos, and other original content. Connect and chat with other people from around the world in an interactive 3D playground. Boot up the floppy drive, grab your mobile phone, and put on your VR headset - VIRAL is an immersive experience that blurs the lines between language, online and IRL, retro and futuristic.
