Documentary of the Korean Hip Hop Artist: Changstarr

Sneak Peek: A documentary of Korean rookie rapper Changstarr (Paul Chang) that follows him through his own "doors of perception."


The Doors of Perception is a philosophical essay, released as a book, by Aldous Huxley. First published in 1954, it details his experiences when taking mescaline. The book takes the form of Huxley’s recollection of a mescaline trip that took place over the course of an afternoon in May 1953. The book takes its title from a phrase in William Blake’s 1793 poem The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. Huxley recalls the insights he experienced, which range from the “purely aesthetic” to “sacramental vision.” He also incorporates later reflections on the experience and its meaning for art and religion.


Following Changstarr’s interview with Slay In Korea, he released his self-directed documentaryĀ Changstarr: The Doors of PerceptionĀ as promised. Now, international Korean hip hop fans can go behind the scenes, taking a closer look at what happened as South Korea’s most poetic and provocative Korean rookie rapperĀ prepared for his latest release, “The Doors of Perception.”


Changstarr’s highly anticipated documentary, Changstarr: The Doors of Perception,Ā follows him to a place somewhere in between the hippie culture of the past and the hip hop culture of the present. As he talks about who and what made him the Korean rookie rapper he is today, it’s easy to see how his passion for American hippie culture heavily influenced his profession as a Korean hip hop artist. In the future, he wants toĀ become a Korean hip hop artist who makes music with meaning, following in the footsteps of American hip hop artists like Kendrick Lamar.
