China’s People’s Liberation Army recently released this promotional video featuring rap-style music and imagery of troops and advanced weaponry in an apparent bid to entice more youth to join its ranks. The footage, which is reportedly the first hip-hop video made by the PLA, was posted last week on the PLA Daily’s website, 81.cn.
