Lordmo R
Lordmo R on the right
 
Lordmo R at first glance might be mistaken for a black man, but he's not black (ethnic-wise).  He is actually from the Va people, an ethnic minority group from Yunnan province in China.  Lordmo R belongs to a multi-ethnic and multi-regional hip hop crew called 南征北战 (National Campaign) which represents hip hop not only from the Han Chinese but also the Hui, Yao, Mongolian, Kazakh, Va, and Bai ethnic minority groups in China.

Here's one of his tracks called 感动 featuring a whole bunch of rappers from all across China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.  The song is a sneak-peak off his中国黑人 album which is scheduled to drop later this year.
Rappers in chronological order:

Kwok kin - Hong Kong - rapping in Cantonese
Qarakhan - Xinjiang - rapping in Uyghur
沈懿 - Taiwan - rapping in Mandarin
FK Moses - Northeast China - rapping in Mandarin
Lordmo R - Yunnan - rapping in Va
Crazy Chef - Beijing - rapping in Mandarin
Naggy - Shanghai - rapping in Mandarin
Madking - Northeast China - rapping in Mandarin
醉人 - Guangxi - rapping in Mandarin
Iceflow - Yunnan - rapping in Mandarin

You can purchase his album on taobao, but sadly it's in chinese though. I've contacted him to see if it's possible for oversea listeners to purchase his album.

He'll reveal his new album on August 20th.
