But Che says that this year more focus will be placed on lyrics, beat, and music.

In a related development, some netizens wanted Edison Chen, a Hong Kong rapper and actor, to be brought on board, but Che ruled it out, saying: "(Edison) Chen does not fit the program."

Edison Chen was in an eye of storm in 2008 for a sexually explicit photo scandal, and his rap is deeply rooted in the so-called "street culture" of the West.

Speaking about the upcoming program, Che says: "I want to tell people rap can be full of positive energy and sunshine. It can be a genre that combines Chinese culture and cutting-edge pop culture."

In The Rap of China show last year, some rappers performed in local dialects. And Che says that such performances will be more common this year.
