Korean Hip-Hop

I think there needs to be less discussion here about mainstream Korean hip hop (read: epik high, free style, etc.).

anyway, to go back on topic, I've just listened to Loptimist's album (22 Channels) and it's great. one of my favourite Korean hip hop producers, for sure.

the album features plenty of underground American rappers. the only downside to this album is is that it features Dead'P who is an underground Korean rapper. i can't stand that guy.

^Well, not recently but I was wondering if anyone had any more info on MC Sniper..I can never find anything solid on him besides that he incorporates hip-hop and traditional Korean music in his stuff & challenges government and the economic conditions in Korea in his music..or something along those lines. Also, is there any other artist like him with this same style? I enjoy listening to his music...& BK love alot...but what does 'BK love' mean..? O_o anyone know?

Well MC Sniper hasn't done anything in a real long time I believe, unless he decided to go really underground and abandonded a distribution deal.

There was a lot of controversy with him a little while ago though, since I believe in an interview he said that he didn't rap because he had a message to say, but he did it because it was a good source of money for him at the time.

Um I think MC Hansai would probably the closest in terms of style, but I don't know whether to consider either of them really underground you know?

Haha and I have no idea what the BK stands for either.

BK was the female singer that sang the chorus for that song.

^according to z-degrees, vol4 drops on march 5th

nice. it might come out tommorow then since they get some albums early sometimes

BK was the female singer that sang the chorus for that song.

^Wow. I guess it was good timing that I asked then. Looking forward to hearing his new stuff.^^ Whoa, BK is a female? :blink: *listening to song again*

Are you sure...?..she has a very deep...unique voice then... :unsure:

^... hmmm after going back to hear the song... I'm not doubting what previous statement. All I know is that when he performed... there was a female singing the chorus, so I don't know if they just decided to get a female for the performances or not.

If you haven't, be sure to check out Poetic License's "시적자유 Poetic License." It's so good that it blows my mind. Why haven't I heard of his name until now? He's got to be the best lyricist in the rap game.

If you guys wanna check out some good recent underground hip hop, listen to Monsoon Nui. Reminds me of back when Garion actually maintained that underground sound.

What about Jiggy Fellaz?

I've just heard their Exclusive Compilation album and I really like it!

i thought that was an awful album. my favourite track on that is "Who's That" by Dead'P. that annoys me because i hate Dead'P.

Wow, the audience is like all asians. :/ I can understand if the event was held in Korea or something, but that thing is in the United States, isn't it? Or is that the whole point?

Haha that's just pretty much how it is..holding an event in K-town is almost like holding it in Korea; it's its own little enclosed autonomous community ^^ For the concerts I've been to (which I heard about online or from friends), I was probably one out of 10 non-Asians in the audience =P
