BIZZY Watches Premiere of His MV Live With Fans

Our Bizzy B has truly lived up to his name this week. Bizzy wanted to let all his fans know about his comeback in every way possible, starting with a pre-listening party on Saturday, and two teaser drops (1, 2) 48 hours before the actual release of his new single, “검은머리 파뿌리/All I Need.”

We thought we had a load of work cut out for us already, including releasing this package of exclusive images  (see 1, 2, 3, 4) to promote Bizzy’s grand return. We underestimated our Bizzy B, however, when Feel Ghood Music announced that B would be watching the premiere of his video on Naver V alongside his fans.

Our generally quiet boy had a 180 tonight, being very vocal about how much this release meant to him. Remaining true to his honest nature, he did admit he was nervous being it has been so long he’d release something on his own. This is also one of the few times he’s hosted a Naver V session alone, and he wasn’t sure what was it fans wanted to see. He made us proud when he trusted his gut, doing a mini performance alongside his MV viewing, and then giving us a freestyle after.

Bizzy’s official stage debut of “All I Need” is tomorrow on M Countdown, but hey, real fans know his debut performance just happened 2 hours ago.

Check Bizzy’s full MV below, though you might wanna’ preface it with his Naver broadcast for optimal enjoyment.

MFBTY’s Bizzy To Release Album After 8 Years

MFBTY’s Bizzy is known to fans as MFBTY’s mysterious (yet single) pretty boy. While many fans focus on Tiger JK & YoonMiRae’s relationship, April 20th marks the day Bizzy takes back the spotlight.

Bizzy’s last EP album, “Bizzionary,” dropped a whopping 8 years ago in 2008. It was led by single, “The Day We Broke Up,” a remix of a Lee HyunWoo’s classic. Bizzy has performed alongside Tiger JK and YoonMiRae for over 10 years, but his main accomplishments are often quieter ones, collaborating with artists such as Leessang, Dok2, Jay Park, Lee Hyori, and many others. However, his upcoming album puts him in the forefront, with fellow MFBTY members and many others providing supporting vocals.

While we still don’t know who else is participating on his album, what we do know is his title single, “검은머리 파뿌리 (All I Need),” will drop April 20th. The single will feature singer, Kye Bumzu, and based on the teaser Bizzy dropped today, we can expect some soulful sounds and Bizzy hotness dressed in a suit.

Bizzy’s debut performance will be on April 21st on MNET M Countdown.

MFBTY Talk Their Fave Lyrics: Slick Rick, Warren G, Mos Def

In the second MFBTY installment of Hyundai Music Library, the group are asked to talk about songs that had meaningful lyrics. They really took us back through time as they talk about the storytelling of Slick Rick, Warren G and the meaning of 213 (Westcoast hip-hop), and then the rarity of Mos Def’s “Ms. Fat Booty.” 

Newer generations will have to wait until later in the episode to recognize a song, when Bizzy talks about the rarity of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “N*ggas in Paris.” 

Regardless if you grew up listening to these classics just like MFBTY, clearly the group is well-versed in hip-hop’s history, taking it way back to its 70s-80s origins.

MFBTY Joins Line Up for LA Korea Times Music Fest

A few weeks ago, we announced that Tiger JK & Bizzy would be part of the Korea Times Music Festival. However, eager MFBTY fans felt a great void without leading lady, YoonMiRae, and many held out until they knew if she’d join for sure.

Well, MFBTY family, your prayers have been answered.

An MFBTY show would not be complete without our fierce siren, and she has agreed to complete the trifecta on May 7th.

The show will take place at LA’s grand Hollywood Bowl. Other artists included in the line up are Red Velvet, FT Island, and AOA.

Still many tickets available on Korea Times Music Festival’s website. Looking forward to seeing you all there!

TigerJK Debuted Bizzy’s Single And P.O’d His Own Manager

On a Thursday night Arirang SoundK interview, Tiger JK and host, singer Esna, made it a mission to get Bizzy speaking. While it was apparent fans were missing YoonMiRae, Tiger JK filled the void with his “Michael Scott” like jokes and by poking harmless fun at partner, Bizzy. We find out Bizzy actually was a babysitter, and that despite Jordan calling him uncle, Jordan is weirded out by Uncle Bizzy.

However, as things got crazier, JK decided to play Bizzy’s next single, which is due to debut next month. Upon noticing what JK was doing, his own manager comes in to give JK the glare so as to not to spoil the single.

But don’t worry! We have it on tape for you!

The hilarity starts circa 1:06. Bizzy’s single starts at 1:47. We get a bit of the hook before MFBTY’s manager gives him the side eye.

The full interview is a real treat for Bizzy fans, who as he said, spoke more than his usual. For JK fans, it’s worth it just for the laughs.

YoonMiRae Talks Balancing Being Performer and Mom

As part of JTBC TV collaboration with magazine, Women’s Focus, the network produced a series of features on the magazine’s female leads, including this month’s cover model, YoonMiRae.

The theme of the March issue is to motivate women who feel they are trapped in the role of “an average mom.” Rather than be average, the issue tells women it is possible to live a dream and also be a mother (i.e. YoonMiRae).

In the footage, Yoon explains that it’s not easy being both. Raising Jordan has been a challenge, and sleep is rarity. She is blessed with a loving husband, Tiger JK, to help her with raising him.

JK later arrives to surprise her while on set, but admits that Jordan is less than enthused about mom being away for work.

See the full footage above.

[VID] MFBTY’s Guilty Pleasure Include Def Leppard and Gwen Stefani

Hyundai Card has partnered with MFBTY to create an intimate series of music discussions at their new Hyundai Music Library. The large collection of both Korean and American LPs is a musician’s dream, where LPs have nearly died and reminiscing past music is a rarity.

In a whopping 30-min episode, MFBTY are asked to discuss their childhood idols and guilty pleasure songs that defined their younger years. Their eyes light up as they lip-synch and goofy dance to Lenny Kravitz, MC Hammer, Gwen Stefani, and Def Leppard.

Though the hip-hop pioneers could not complete the episode without talking about 90s hip-hop, where Tiger JK became excited talking about Wutang Clan, Nas, Biggie, and Tasha’s favorite, 2pac. 

A special bonus: Tiger JK calls Illionaire’s Dok2 mid-session.

YoonMiRae Told Us She Was Fierce In Just One Magazine Feature

The March issue of Women’s Focus (여성중앙) put powerful women, particularly famous mothers, in the spotlight. Naturally, YoonMiRae was included, and her photos clearly show she’s more than an average mother.

Donning a fierce afro, MiRae shines in colorful outfits complimenting her figure, while at times getting sexy and revealing some leg. For a minute, we forget she’s a laid back, easy going woman, who just happens to play the role of mom during the day. All we see is the most influential female in Korean hip-hop.

Women’s Focus magazine will release episodes from behind the scenes starting March 5th, 9:40PM KST. Check the preview below.

[vid] MFBTY’s Bizzy Left Speechless By His Birthday Gift

Screenshot 2016-03-01 22.25.10

While we at DT MFBTY INTL traditionally deliver gifts via social media, we wanted to give MFBTY’s Bizzy something different for his big “9th” birthday. We know our Leap Year boy is still growing, so we went for stuff he could touch, smell, and most importantly, EAT.

When we put out the call on our social media outlets, we encouraged fans to send stuff that MFBTY could not find in Korea. We were asked what Bizzy’s hobbies were, his favorite food, what he likes to wear, and the results were pretty amazing.

Some of Bizzy’s gifts included:

  • weighted boxing gloves from a Texas fan
  • a box of Twinkies (also from Texas)
  • Rooster Sirarcha sauce bottles
  • orange Tic Tacs (his weakness)
  • Guyabano and Biis from Brazil
  • Siraracha potato chips
  • artwork and letters
  • Reese’s Pieces packs
  • a handwoven hat from California
  • a hat, sweatpants, and snacks from us

Feel Ghood Music filmed the whole reveal, and in between you can hear MFBTY being full dork and cracking jokes on each other. Tiger JK does not make a physical appearance because he was too busy playing witty cameraman.

Supposedly, Bizzy got greedy at first and brought the entire box home with him, but after some pressure, brought back some goods to share (LOL!).

Check the video for the full reaction.

Thanks to all the fans and Drunken Tiger MFBTY INTL staff who submitted!
