    NEWS FLASH Hiphop Wired: Maybe y'll didn't know but everyone else KNEW from day 1 these folks were Black, Asian and possibly something else. As if the eyes and google doesn't give it away.

  • Tonto Kawalski

    NEITHER IS THE ROCK. HE'S HALF BLACK AND HALF SOMOAN. I THINK THE EDITORS OF THIS WEBSITE BE SMOKING SOME LOW BUDGET KUSH WHEN THE COME UP WITH THESE ARTICLES.

    • Celeb H8ter

      agreed

  • chevybaby

    They Forgot Tyson Beckford

  • buumii

    since when the heck has pharrell been asian????

    • buggin_out

      my thoughts exactly, these dudes take rumors and run with them

    • greyeyedgirl

      SINCE THE DAY HE WAS BORN. He is part black and part Asian. Foxy's grandmother is Chinese, on her father's side. In order for her to have a Chinese grandparent, she would mean one of her parents is in fact Chinese or part Chinese. The same with Tyson Beckford, Kimmora is of a black father and Japanese mother.

  • Christielove1468

    I have always knew about Naomi Campbell being biracial:half jamaican and chinese. But I cant believe that Foxy,NeYo and Pharrell are biracial too. I heard a rumor for years that JayZ was half black and filipino.Yet he clearly has african features:kinky hair,african nose and lips.

    • reese

      If you are 1/4 or less. They are no more mixed than the majority of black people.

  • C’mon With That BS!!!

    How Deep Are You Digging Into The Bloodline? Naomi, Neyo, Foxy???

  • Steelcitychick

    @C'mon...agreed...I always thought that Neyo, (not so)Foxy, and Naomi where straight up Negroes!.....seems like Bossip is reaching a bit!

  • The Cynic

    Some of these folks (Chanel Iman, Noami, Ne-Yo, etc) are only a FOURTH or less Asian...

    You could have at least put up some fractions or a description on the bottom of the page

  • N8

    Samoan blood can be traced to asians of taiwan and papuans, but we're talking about 5 thousands years ago or more however depending on the samoan you ask they will have diffrent answers Before you hate on my comment remember this is not an opinion of mine it is merely info i got from research so if it is wrong then the source is wrong not me

  • sing

    Some of u y'all r really ignorant......samoan IS asian!!!!!!!!!!

    • rah

      whoever thinks a Samoan is an Asian is a dumbfark! im samoan we are polynesians aka pacific islanders you stupid idiot!!! i might aswell call african americans somalians!!

      • mickey

        @ Jake....for the record somalians are Black ppl; and if they reside in America, then that will make them African American

  • me

    Yes Pharell and neyo are part asian.

  • Anna~nicole

    ...... Like so what who really gives a fu$$ about who is mix wit what~ geesh black negros r so simple minded arguing about nonsense (who mixed who not) get a life, crackers r sitting back laughing at u silly people go at each other

  • Celeb H8ter

    Lol! You just brought back memories with that comment. People talking bout they're mixed because their grandpa's father's father was white, when no one even asked.

    @Anna Nicole
    What made u click your mouse on this headline if you didnt give a fu$$?

  • http://www.cjonespr.com cjonespr

    This list stinks

  • c*****idy

    THE ROCK IS SAMOAN AND BLACK.

  • bebe234

    Someone forgot Ashanti!!

  • EEE

    I can see C*****ie and Chanel Iman but the rest of them...

  • EEE

    what the ***** they block c*****ie name out fo?

  • Jake

    Hello Samoan is poliniesian not Asian jack*****es.

  • Mr.C

    What about tha Homie Miguel

    • Yin

      Miguel is not on the list cause he's not Asian -- Father is Mexican!

  • Liz

    naomi campbell is black jamaican and chinese jamaican
    learn your facts people and what about Tyson beckford is also black jamaican and chinese jamaican im jamaican american thast how i know

  • Mona

    Naomi is not part chinese. Stop making up stuff. Tyson's great grandmother was chinese though

  • CougarOnTheRun

    Over 50% of the people living in this world are bi-racial. Check out your ancestor's roots. You will be surprised at your findings. Genealogy is something powerful!

  • http://@ACascano Adia

    NEWSFLASH: Naomi is Black/Chinese.

  • N8

    I am deeply sorry if i have offended any samoan people out there with my comment but i was truely unaware that they get offended by being asked if they are asian as i said what i posted was not my believes it was merely research from a site i looked at however now that i research some more i realise samoans are a proud polynesian race so agian i am sorry i do not descriminate against any race be it black white somoan haspanic asian ect i believe the color does not make the man/women who they are does peace and god bless

    • Celeb H8ter

      I went to wikipedia and read the same thing linking Polynesians to Asia about 3500 yrs ago. Some may get offended but its history. So dont beat yourself up.

  • Cocobaby

    Foxy Brown is not have asian may have 1/4 asian but not half. Naomi Cambells mom is half asian wich makes her 1/4 also. The Rock is Samoan and Black which makes him half asian for those of you that commented and said he is not half asian. Samoans are considered asian pacific islanders. Kelis is Asian, Puerto Rican and african american. And Chanel is also only 1/4 asian. And if Naomi campbell and chanel can make the list with only 1/4 asian heritage were is Tyson Beckford because he is also 1/4 asian.

  • Naleo

    The rock isnt asian. He is half black and half samoan. Samoans are pacific islanders or polynesian not asian. Yall needa stop sayin we are descendents of asia because it is not scientifically proven and until it is we have our own cl*****ification POLYNESIAN!!

    • SayCheese

      @Naleo eating fried rice with pineapple stuck in it, isn't Asian. Yeah right.

  • Tonto Kawalski

    IN THE END, IT DOESNT MATTER WHO IS WHAT, BECAUSE THE CL*****IFACTION, AND SEPERATION THAT NOT ONLY THIS COUNTRY HAS , BUT THE WORLD, IS WHO HAS GREEN AND WHO DOESNT.

  • Not Mixed

    Hip Hop Wired is really reaching. The only ones truly mixed with Asian are Kelis, Amerie, Kimora, Chanel Iman, and C*****ie. All the others are a reach. The truth is most blacks in America are not 100% black. My great great grandmother was half white and half Indian. Does that make me mixed? Um no.

  • greyeyedgirl

    east Indians are also Asian i know....my mother is black and east Indian and my father is Puerto Rican. Samoans are in fact Asian. I have been mistaken for Samoan by Samoans, until one of them heard me speak Spanish!.lol I p***** for other ethnic groups but I consider myself BLACK!

  • tony m

    I know both her parents and they are both jamaicans, who live in streatham, south london. I saw her mum yesterday near the National Theatre.

  • Tia

    @7lady why should they have to deny their roots or heritage to make YOU feel better about it? You sound stupid. If people choose to embrace all sides of their heritage it has nothing to do with them touting it to make themselves look better. It sounds like you have some insecurities about being "just black".

    Signed,

    Happily Just Black.

  • sky

    Who ever writing this bs really need to do their home work befor making up false identities on people..misleading the public on who these people really are.

  • lach.

    i thought the rock was hawaiian and asian. not black and asian. i was just looking some stuff up on him last night.

  • lach.

    another thing, does kimora lee likes her black side more or her asian side more? because it seems she wants to show she's asian more than her black side.

  • lach.

    does kimora like being black more or asian?

  • cornelius

    @lach I think she probably likes being Kimora more than being black OR asian. You are who you are. It's like asking "do you like your mother's genetic contribution to your right thumb more than your father's genetic contribution to your left ear?" If you say something good about your thumb, does that mean you have a problem with your father?

    She IS more asian than most black folks, but she's also more black than most asians, so I guess your answer would depend on who's in the room.

  • 5636rfg

    Pharrell is absolutely not Asian... -.-

    • leelee

      he's a quarter korean actually hun.

      • richstick

        no he's not. if you listen to his song Kick push, he says in his lyrics his parents say "how we both black and our kid is biracial?" and how he's "black on the outside and white in the middle like an oreo" As in he's a black man but acts white. So yeah both his parents are black.

      • diannna

        idiot, kick push??? you're talking about lupe fiasco not pharrell, lupe probably aint mixed but pharrell is

    • diannna

      Pharrell is half filipino just like that one guy from black eyed peas.I think his name is az or elz or some weird sh8t, Pharrell don't look fully black.

      • OnTay Johnson

        nope, you didn't see the oprah interview recently, both his parents are black and he has his mothers eyes.

      • diannna

        wonder why it's all over the net that he's half filipino and it's on page 6 of this website, he looks pinoy too. I haven't seen the oprah episode but what if his dad remarried. I mean if you see my dad with my step mom it doesn't mean I'm full black when you haven't seen my mom. IDK he may have both parents black

      • diannna

        ah i see his mother now, i googled it, she is black mixed with filipino and korean, he looks a lot like his mom, i haven't seen his dad yet, yeah i was gonna say, maybe one of his parents is mixed but not him directly being biracial

      • diannna

        I can't reply to you because I think since you posted a link it's still waiting moderating or something of that short but yeah many blacks are mixed or have a parent that's mixed so its not uncommon. One may look full black but it doesn't mean they are not mixed, her eyes and features I can tell she has filipino and korean and if you look at pharrell he doesn't look like jay z, wesley snipes, etc, his eyes and features give him away of someone who could be multicultural although he's not exactly biracial.

      • diannna

        oh and a lot of biracial people just go by one race, mainly they just say their black but it doesn't necessarily mean they are not mixed ,like paula patton, halle berry and jasmine guy don't really say they are mixed even though they are. I used to do that but not anymore since people would ask me what else I was mixed with because I guess they could see it or something.

  • kimboslice

    yes he is... lol you just dont want to believe it boo

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/SuperElvisfreshlyATT Freshly_Snipes

    The Rock is HALF Samoan and African Canadian,,and they (Polynesian/Samoan) are NOT Asian and will get offended if you call them Asian.

    • leelee

      very true. they wanna be called pacific islanders, not asians.

  • Jasonx

    What about Kevin mccall

  • Hope Franks

    c*****ie is not asain AT ALL she confirmed it.

    • raward

      C*****ie ventura (cant see the images...phone won't load them!) But c*****ie the sanger (I guess that's debatable too lol)... is 1/4 filipina and I suppose that's how politically correct you want to be. Most of the pinoys I know consider themselves asian including my mother but shes the least PC person I know! Lol

      • Hope Franks

        I never said she was all black. She said herself she was of Latin descent

      • diannna

        She's actually Filipino.Mexican,African American, West Indian. As far as being Asian, Filipino is pacific islander which is sometimes grouped with Asians. For example Universities and other organizations have a pacific islander/asian groups.

    • diannna

      C*****ie is not all black, you can look at her and tell, any fool can tell she aint just black, I've seen her parents, her mother is mixed with black and her dad is filipino, have you seen her instragram family pics? all filipinos

  • topazz

    Brandy and brother Ray J are of asian heritage also. Their great grandfather was Chinese. Came to Mississippi (can't remember if by choice or by force) to work on building the railroads.
