Southstar (of Smilez and Southstar)
MILESTONE: First Asian-American One-Hit Wonder.
Complex says: Orlando-based rapper Southstar (who was born of Chinese/Filipino descent) was able to score a Top 40 hit along with his partner-in-rhyme Smilez when they released "Tell Me" in 2002. Although the song was kind of cheesy, it was a mainstay on 106 and Park's countdown and that has to count for something. Unfortunately, it was also the duo's only hit. But fuck it, a hit is a hit!
