Happy new year! Or gung hay choy fat as they say in Chinese. Today, Asians and Asian-Americans from all over the world recognize the Chinese Lunar New Year as a holiday and will be celebrating with loved ones all night long.

Earlier this morning, even President Obama sent this joyful message to the world: “As people of all cultures and faiths welcome in the new year, let all of us celebrate our families and our ancestors, and enjoy the company of our loved ones.”

Check out this exclusive hip-hop inspired journey through New York City’s Chinatown district.

(P.S. It’s the year of the rabbit!)
