MFBTY, a project group comprised of Korean Hip Hop legends, Tiger JK, Yoon Mi Rae and Bizzy, have confirmed they will be supplying their fans with new music after just over 18 months since their previous mini album “The Cure” was released (under the Drunken Tiger name).
Tiger JK has confirmed that they will be releasing their first full album on March 19th, 2015, and returning to the stages, which was very welcome news for their fans all around the world. On this album, it is expected to have a strong line up from all genres of Korean music scenes. One confirmed collaboration is with Korean Idol group BTS leader Rap Monster, who has been seen hanging out with MFBTY in their offices recently.
MFBTY, which is an acronym for My Fans Better Than Yours, was created back in 2013 by Tiger JK, Yoon Mi Rae and Bizzy. They created this group so they could produce music that they love to perform on stage. MFBTY has been stirring buzz by releasing several hits with soulful vocals and addictive melodies as well as experimental tracks which combines hip hop, electronic, and progressive sounds into one. Their focus is to create feel-good music for themselves as well as their fans.
MFBTY has repeatedly proved their worth by topping the charts with their debut single, “Sweet Dream,” as well as the mini album title track “살자 – The Cure.” Yoon Mi Rae also released a solo track featuring the other MFBTY members (Tiger JK, Bizzy) last December – Angel, which also got the number one spot in several music charts in Korea. Their debut single, “Sweet Dream,” in particular gathered worldwide attention with its visually stunning music video produced by their creative director, Lumpens. US Billboard also mentioned the group in their articles, once again proving their presence around the world.
MFBTY also represented Korea in the world’s biggest music market festival MIDEM in France (2013). MIDEM representative, Bruno Crolet, highly praised MFBTY, stating that he had never seen Asian music performers be able to reach a Caucasian crowd and get them to put their hands up and be one with them, He dubbed it “the best performance at MIDEM.” Crolet also tweeted an article mentioning MFBTY showing his support and respect towards the group.
MFBTY is under their own record label, Feel Ghood Music. Apart from MFBTY themselves, there is also an electronic DJ, art directors, visual directors as well as other professionals who are signed under Feel Ghood Music, making them a versatile and unique record label. Their vision is to continuously evolve into a label that focuses on music as well as other parts of the culture. Feel Ghood Music had a great end of the year with Yoon Mi Rae’s single track, “Angel,” topping all charts.
