KHIPHOP IS LIFE // ❤

Have you noticed...

there isn't a khiphop community? Request one > here < I love the K-Pop community but some posts just don't fit into the K-Pop mold. I thank you in advance with this playlist. ( ๑॔˃̶◡ ˂̶๑॓)৴♡

GAEKO // Rhythm Is Life

Not only can this man sing and rap, He's gorgeous too. Lawdddd help me

SWINGS // Bulldozer

Swings can go from 0 to 100 real quick in his music. This is by far my favorites song of his. I can't believe I ever thought this song was aggressive lololol

ZICO + JTONG // Predator

I was tempted to put in everything Zico has ever been in because he does no wrong and I'm a sucker for sick beats buttttt I'll practice self control (◍•ڡ•◍)❤

JAY PARK + the whole squad // Cha Cha Cypher

THIS WHOLE F*CKING ALBUM IS F I R E.

REX.D // The Bad

This song just brings out so many emotions. It feels so raw. ❤ ❤ ❤ Does anyone know how he's doing lately? Last thing I read about him was that he was diagnosed with leukemia

DYNAMIC DUO + NAFLA// J.O.T.S.

As if this song wasn't bad a$$ enough they made the mv black and white. The perfect touch.

FLOWSIK // Yah, Nuh

@PassTheSuga introduced me to this gem and I love her for it (༶ૢ˃̵̑◡˂̵̑༶ૢ)

KEITH APE // It G Ma

I've played this 10,000X tbh lol It has a special place in my heart. I can't decide which is my favorite verse. ◟(◔ั₀◔ั )◞ ༘♡

BEENZINO // Aqua Man

This is the video that made me fall in love with him andddddd then it spiraled out of control as I downloaded all of his music. Lol #noregrets

EPIK HIGH // Born Hater

I can't not share this. Was my sh*t then, still my sh*t now ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

K hiphop is literally my life!!!!! I found khiphop way before kpop and I'm soo happy I did!!! We definitely need a khiphop community
i def put in a request
Thank you everyone! I'm glad there are others who feel the same and are willing to help create a new community ❤️
khiphop is everything to me! Hi Lite Records, Aomg and ILLIONAIRE are my favourite companies. I'm glad kpop introduced me to my ub Jay Park which then got me into khiphop and then into the underground rappers!
I agree wholeheartedly.

NEW MUSIC PLAYDAY
Hey again, kids.....I'm on it this week and put together a playlist my favorite K-HipHop and R&B releases of the week. I'm practically on time with this.....what devilry is at work here?? Anyway we've got thangs to go thru so let's get started. RUDE PAPER__TWO RUDI BOYZ I'm just a fan of Rude Paper.....Koonta's vocals make my ears happy. And I like how chill this MV is. Korean music just continually surprises me....like they're doing reggae. And I'm no expert but they're doing it pretty well. THE QUIETT FT CHANGMO & CHAMAIN__GOOD SATURDAY Illionaire Daddy is back.....Just another fantastic track with fantastic features. EPIK HIGH__DON'T HATE ME (Japanese Version) This. Was. Awesome. The chubby dude in the MV is living my dream. Don't judge. ABNORMAL CREW__REBORN I have been scouring Soundcloud and I can't find this song.....but it IS on iTunes. This is a complete jam....I really don't know anything about this crew or the members but I'm getting idol vibes because it seems almost choreographed. BUT SERIOUSLY HOMEBOYS HAVE GOT BARS. CHANGMO__SANAI CHILL BLUE FLAMES all over this track. I'm a big Changmo fan....I just love his vibe. Most of his tracks are self produced. Check him out on Soundcloud ☜ HANHAE & JESSI__WHY DO YOU? QUEEN on the track. I had to add this. Hanhae too.....Hanhae too. Can't forget to mention him. YANG DA IL__SHE DIDN'T LOVE ME I've been waitingggggg for a mini album from him for soooooo looooong. Thank you, BrandNew. Ever since I saw the live roof top performance MV of "We Still Know" with composer/producer Jungkey, I've been in love. FXXKING AMAZING VOCALS and his jaw line.....kills me. This did not disappoint. And if y'all like his sound definitely check out his new mini album, Say. SWINGS__BEAUTIFUL My babyyyyy♥ I know a lot of people don't like him but he's honestly one of my favorite k-rappers. I've been feeling like crap lately.... just lonely and down on myself...and this was pretty much just what I needed in my ears. Looking forward to his next mixtape....LEVITATE 3 DROPS ON MAY 3RD. SAN E & CHANCELLOR__안주거리 (Drunken Meals) I've got my mad love for Chancellor and his honey vocals. And I really can't help but love San E. THIS IS SUCH A CUTE SOUNDING SONG and it's dedicated to all us lonely singles out there♥ I mean and check the cover art, kids.....It looks just like San E and Chance lol. LAY.BN FT PUNCHNELLO__초승달 Such a cool Retro feeling intro lol. Its got that jazzy type swing feel. I LOVE IT. Her vocals are soft, super smoky and jazzy sounding. She even does some scat in one of the tracks....I'm already loving this girl♥ Check her mixtape out on Soundcloud ☜ BABYLON FT DOK2__BETWEEN US My tiny but mighty bias wrecker came back in a big way. I love this. But I ABSOLUTELY HAFTA SHARE THE B-TRACK TO THIS SINGLE....... BABYLON FT HA:TFELT__비 오는 거리 Yes....Babylon AND HA:TFELT. I got chills the first time I listened to this. ITS SOOOOOOOOOO FXXKIN GOOD♡ Just put it in, on, and around your ears. Just do it. IAN__BY MY SIDE Y'all know....mama loves her slow jams. And this child.....he was putting out covers on YouTube. And how he even came on my radar was his cover of Hold Me Tight by Loco ft Crush, it honestly impressed me. No one will ever trump the original....but he did his thang and did the song justice. I was extremely intrigued to see he released an original and I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. He's got such a soothing voice and a lot of potential. TAEK__LIAR Very chill ambient vibe. The intro of the MV is so cool with the sign language.....it's awesome. If you just wanna vibe out....this needs to be on your playlist. MELTEN__DON'T LEAVE ME I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS. ITS SO BEAUTIFUL. I honestly cried during the first listen.....it's such a beautifully sad song that's so dynamic and full of emotion. It literally moves you. I love the arrangement....just the piano and vocals. MY FAVORITE RELEASE OF THE WEEK. NO DOUBT. Gahhhhh look at my tiny baby go!!!ヽ(^。^)ノ GIT IT, BOY. Anyway thanks so much perusing my card! This week we've got my son, CRUSH DROPPING HIS NEW ALBUM ON THE 6TH. My baby, SWINGS DROPPING HIS MIXTAPE, LEVITATE 3 ON THE 3RD. GIRIBOY'S SUPPOSED TO RELEASE AN ALBUM IN MAY. He said two albums but he might be just teasing and tryna kill me. Who knows what else by who else is cominggggg. Be excited. xx
K-Pop Challenge: A Workout Playlist Perfect For #Gains
First off, you guys, I just spent an embarrassing amount of time photoshopping multiple Gains for this picture, so you better appreciate it. But before I was doing all that, I jogged for about 2 miles around my neighborhood and listened to all of the K-Pop songs that really get me pumped and running fast. I thought maybe it would be fun to share with you what K-Pop tracks I love listening to when I work out! (I don't know if they do this in other parts of the world, but here in the United States, we make a lot of jokes about acquiring 'gains' aka getting into shape and building muscle. Hence my weird Gain meme.) Anyway, here are some of the tracks I listen to when I'm getting my jog on. Throw these onto your own workout mix, and you'll be feeling the burn in no time! (ALSO, if you want to share what K-Pop songs you like breaking a sweat to, consider yourself tagged!) 1. "Come Here" - Masta Wu featuring Bobby & Dok2: Somewhere @PassTheSuga and @jiggzy19 are like "DUH! OF COURSE!" In the words of late 90s Jay-Z, this track is 'so necessary'. This song really gets my heart rate going, especially toward the beginning of a good cardio workout. 2. "Rainstorm" - Rainstone featuring Brian McKnight, San-E, & Verbal Jint: When I first heard this song, I thought it was completely random because when I think of Brian McKnight, I think about the slow jams at my middle school formals, but this song is so good! Plus San-E and Verbal Jint are two of my favorite Korean rappers. 3. "Good Boy" - G-Dragon and Taeyang: Yoooooooo. I'll be honest and say I absolutely hate this music video, but this song is the one of the best workout songs. I still love you, Bigbang! Even if you all let your hair get kind of weird! 4. "AEAO" - Dynamic Duo and DJ Premier: What is one of my playlists without a Dynamic Duo song? I love this song, and even though Choiza is my 'ultimate bias', everything Gaeko does between 1:30 - 3:30 is, well, dynamic. 5. "1 AM" - Taeyang: I didn't even know I liked working out to this song until I was finishing up my run today and it came on. I think it's really good for a cool-down because it's still uptempo, but much more mellow. (Thanks for all the good workout jams, Taeyang. I wonder if he works out to his own songs.) 6. "Bulldozer" - Swings: This song makes me want to crush skulls. Figuratively, of course. I don't actually want to crush people's skulls. (My favorite part is when he raps in Jeolla dialect. Beaaaaast.) 7. "A" - GOT7: For some reason, whenever my workout apps start up, this is the first song that comes on. I totally love that it does though because this is one of my 'happy dance' jams. I love starting my morning jog with this song! 8. "Ice" - Phantom: Back before "A", this was my go-to warm-up track. I think it's important to start your workout off with a song that makes you feel really happy and energized, and both this song and "A" do it for me. 9. "Crush" - 2NE1: I feel like listening to CL rap should be required for any and all workouts. I bet it makes you a billion times more efficient. Well, that's just an estimate. I don't know about a billion.
K-Pop Challenge: My Favorite Songs from My Favorite Artists!
Am I really the first one to do this challenge? OKAY. Here is my 'Favorite Songs from my Favorite Artists" playlist challenge. This was really hard, and I'll admit there were a few casualties on the way (sorry, 2PM), but I hope you all enjoy it! 1. PRIMARY - "Happy Ending" featuring Gary of Leessang and Jinsul of Mad Soul Child: I remember when I first heard this song, I was completely blown away by hearing this very 'trip hop'-style vocalist from all the way in Korea. Jinsul's voice is seriously incredible. This was also my first time hearing Gary rap, and I think my favorite thing about the Amoeba Culture producer Primary is how good he is at sort of mixing and matching different K-Pop artists to create these magical songs. 2. BIGBANG - "Monster": This was actually the first single that came out after I became a fan of their music. (I've only been listening to K-Pop for around 2 years.) Coming from a very strong EDM background, I loved how boundary-pushing this song was. The production talent going on at YG is insane. Even this instrumental is good. What. 3. DYNAMIC DUO - "To Be.. (참고 살아)": Dynamic Duo does a lot of songs with features on them. For example, last album had artists like Hyorin from Sistar or Crush on them, but my favorite Dynamic Duo songs are when they actually do the vocal lines themselves. Gaeko's voice on this chorus always makes me want to sing along. His versatility is seriously underrated. 4. 2NE1 - "Good To You": I love dancing around to 2NE1's super confident hip-hop songs, but I think I am much more drawn to their ballads and slower songs. For a group that's so 'in your face', their ballads come off with a strongly contrasting vulnerability. I also love how they truly found a part for each member that really brings out their strengths. I also love that it ends with the rap verse G-Dragon wrote for CL. This song is so effortlessly cool. 5. SAN-E - "My Girlfriend's Mama (지영이 어머니)": I love how San-E has a really crazy and silly sense of humor, and how even if you don't really know much Korean or follow it at all, you can still pick up on all of that fun energy. This track is directed to his girlfriend's mom who can't STAND him no matter how hard he works to make her change her mind. 6. EPIK HIGH - "We Fight Ourselves" featuring Younha: Every single song on all of their albums is absolute magic, but I think this is my favorite song du jour when it comes to Epik High. I feel like whenever they choose to feature a singer on one of their songs, they're really wise with it. Needless to say, Younha adds such fragility to this track. It's really engaging. 7. BEENZINO / JAZZY FACT - "아까워": My hands-down favorite hip-hop group in the history of anything is The Pharcyde from the early 90s, and if I were to venture a guess, I would think that Beenzino is a huge fan of them too because whenever I listen to his music - whether it's solo or as a part of his original duo Jazzy Fact - I feel like there's a whole lot of throwback going on. This track, whose title translates to "That's a Shame", is perhaps the one I attach myself to the most. 8. ZION.T - "Two Melodies" featuring Crush: Between Crush and Zion.T, this song is performed ridiculously well. I remember when everyone freaked out the first time it was pointed out that Zion.T was actually younger than G-Dragon because Zion.T definitely has the stage presence and the talent of a veteran singer. I always know when he's on a track, I'm probably going to love it. 9 and 10. AILEE & SWINGS - "A Real Lady": HA! I found a way to fit 10 artists on here instead of just my usual 9! I love this song so much, and if you can find the English translation, I highly suggest it because it's a really positive song for young women. Ailee is a serious powerhouse that delivers each lyric with so much confidence. And Swings, well, he's just the coolest. I still haven't found a song by either of them that I don't like.
🎼FRESH TRACKS: K-HipHop Summer Releases Part 1🎤
Wow.... it's been awhile, but I got motivated to share some of my favorite new releases of the K-Hip Hop persuasion. I had to break this playlist into 2 parts.... possibly 3. Lotsa good stuff! There were some HUGE releases by Jay Park & Ugly Duck, B-Free & The Cohort, #GUN, Luizy & Flowsik....but there were some releases that you prolly missed and deserve some play time. And that's what I'm gonna focus on. Per usual, children.... This playlist contains adult content and strong language. If that ain't your bag, sashay away. Now LEGGO. We're gonna kick it off with a remix by The Bae..... GRAY FT HOODY__SUMMER NIGHT REMIX Gray the Bae released this remix of his song Summer Night and added Hoody to the mix. And honestly, this is summer perfection. The instrumental is hella clean.... like I'd expect anything less from him. This track is absolutely everything.... mostly because of Hoody's vocals and partly because he says "You can be my girl tonight...and I can be your man" and set my ovaries aflame. CHANGMO__DON Hella catchy, this has such a lazy bounce that's so easy to vibe to. And even if you don't know the words, you'll end up joining in at the chorus anyway. Changmo is flying under the radar so far but don't sleep on him. He puts out some great stuff. Check out his SoundCloud ☜☜☜ and give his latest mini album, 돈 벌 시간 2, a listen. Your ears will thank me. PART TIME COOKS & SOULCHEF FT NUCKSAL__SMASH TOWN I checked this out for my boy, Nucksal, but it ended up being one of my fave new releases. First of all.... the MV is flipping hilarious. AND THAT HOOK. It had me from the beginning. Feel good vibes here with a 90s sound and I'm all about it. The entire album, 7:30, has a great vibe. I highly recommend downloading if that sound is your bag, baby. This duo, consisting of Saul Goode from South Carolina, USA and Black Moss from South Africa, is based in South Korea and is a well known name in the Korean Hip Hop scene. (And this is my first time checking them out sooooo this info made me feel like a noob for real.) Here's the link to their SoundCloud ☜☜☜☜ they've got full albums uploaded for your listening pleasure. BEWHY & CJAMM__PUZZLE Mayyyyynne......I've been snatched by this. The finalists of Show Me The Money 5 HAD TO do a collaboration so they'd have a song to do together when they come to the U.S. for the Show Me The Money 5 Concert in September.... which I will NOT be attending because I hafta adult it and save money for bills and food and stuff. Kinda salty about the whole situation still but moving onnnn.... DYNAMIC DUO, BOI B & CRUSH__high fiVe Pretty much lit. I mean.... what more can I say? Amoeba Culture.... they kill it. It's nice to see Boi B get a feature after being on Show Me The Money 5. Hopefully we'll get to see more of him in the future. SURAN FT HWASA__DDANG DDANG DDANG Great summer vibes here. Dare I say....its twerkworthy. Suran's got such a unique voice... uhhhh it's so good. And Hwasa is kinda bae so this was amazing. JONG SHIN YOON FT GAEKO__EMPTY CITY This MV is kinda mesmerizing. I mean hello, legs (っ˘ڡ˘ς)....She makes long boarding seem so easy and fun. And I'm really digging the funkiness of this track. Shin Yoon just makes good music and when he features a great MC like Gaeko, I love it that much more. NU. D__BALLIONAIRE I mentioned this boy in my Top 5 of 2015 ☜ linked it in case you wanna know more about him and check out his other releases. What I love most about him is his versatility. And this summer track showcases what he can do perfectly...singing, rapping, and being a talented cutie in general. And as if he's not talented enough, he also DIRECTED this music video. Someone get that boy a cookie! BASICK FT HWASA & G2__NICE So fxcking nice...for real. I dig it when Basick sings. And I know he's a happily married father.... but damn, he was looking good js. And G2 is just too adorable (๑^ں^๑) HASH SWAN FT dKASH__AY After I saw this boy on Show Me The Money 5, I checked out both his mixtapes and binge watched errythang Hash Swan on YouTube. He's got such a distinct tone and flow.... he doesn't sound like anyone on my radar. Don't sleep on him. He's so talented and unique. This release is SO DAMN GOOD.....chill summer vibes. GEEKS__DIVIN' GEEKS IS BACKKKKK!!!! I missed them so much♥ In true Geeks style, they kept it chill, fun, and geeky. This is such an easy listen..... UUUGGH LIL BOI SOUNDS SO GOOD.... lol apologies, I've got a major Lil Boi bias. Anyway, this has such a great bounce to it. They've got such a great way of melding their vocals and their rap verses. They're seriously so talented and one of my faves♥ JUNOFLO FT YOUNG KOCONUT & DANNY CHUNG__BRING YA FRIENDS If he's not on your radar, he needs to be because he puts out great stuff.... Plus he's kinda gorgeous. This bop is perfect for a summer drive. If you haven't already, give him a follow on SoundCloud ☜☜☜ And here's his snapchat ID just because ȏ.̮ȏ.... samjuno KEEBOMB__SUMMER SUMMER SUMMER This hook gets stuck in my head every time. It's so catchy. I can't wait for summerrrrrrr... JERO FT GIRIBOY__AIRPLANE Summer vibes again... This is so damn catchy. Solid debut single. And he's so dang cute. Real talk.... I only peeped this track for Giribae BUT I stayed because this kid has a great voice. PENOMECO FT PUNCHNELLO & CRUSH__FOR YOU PENOMECO comes out with such great stuff. I loved his song, Ma Fam ☜... definitely check that one out if you're feeling him. He also featured on Zico's Yes Or No. Punchnello is rising on everyone's radar since he featured on the track, Eung Freestyle, back in April. He's signed to Tablo's label, HIGHGRND so you know he's hella talented.... linked his track, Birthday ☜ check it out! SUPERBEE__MY NAME IS SUPERBEE Produced by Giriboy, the instrumental has such an upbeat, playful feel that's almost cute. I LOVE IT. I dig Superbee singing his own hook. Now this is coming from someone who isn't the biggest fan of Superbee in general, but he's a good MC and I think he's really working to change his image. I appreciate the effort he's putting in. MBA EK__ONE TIME MBA EK is a member of the crew Most Badass Asians or MBA. They're flying under the radar but I promise you, they're the next big thing. They put out solid stuff. Check them out on YouTube ☜☜☜ Anyway, back to this song, EKhan is on that lazy melodic flow with the distorted vocals that I dig so hard ala Dope'Doug. I love how chill this track is. Give him a follow on SoundCloud ☜☜☜ TAEWAN__PROBLEM I LIVE FOR THIS. Working The Weekend vibes on this track and I love it♥ Taewan aka C-LUV has been on the scene since 2006 so he's an OG. If you're on that R&B shxt, then you definitely need to check out his stuff. NAKEDBIBI__goodfeeling I've mentioned this gal before.... she's straddling that line between R&B and indie. Memorable voice for sure. This is my favorite track by her so far. Linking her SoundCloud ☜☜ cuz she's awesome. Well that wraps up Part 1 of my playlist. I'll try and get Part 2 up ASAP since I'm feeling motivated. HOPE Y'ALL ENJOYED! ツ
