MFBTY ADVENTURES THROUGH LA; KILLS IT AT KTMF

KoreaTimes Hollywood Bowl is the longest running American annual KPOP concert, boasting of having many of Korea’s top of the top artists. While this was the primary reason MFBTY came to LA, they made the most of their short stay. Our team was lucky enough to document parts of their ventures (with management photos for those moments we weren’t present), and we’re happy to let the fandom live vicariously through our experience.

DAY 1

The group arrived last Thursday, May 5th, and while the flight was tiring, they were in high spirits for their upcoming gig. The trio decided to add associate DJ, DJ R2, to their set last minute, adding an interesting scratch combo with their regular DJ, Smells. The brisk LA weather was refreshing for all of them, and a stay in LA always brings about past fun adventures they had in the city (LA is JK’s second home, as he spent most of his childhood there). The staff of KTMF were glad to put them up in one of the fancier hotels in the city, The Millennium Biltmore, an arrangement that is more extravagent than their usual accommodations. Bizzy was more than happy to post the evidence of their fancy stay.

While sleep was probably a smarter choice, the trio took to the streets of Downtown LA that night to take a brisk walk. DJ R2 seemed the most excited by his big city visit, but manager, Ryoji, DJ Smells, and Bizzy were glad to show excitement and videobomb R2’s Instagram.

DAY 2

The excitement of the city made sleeping tough, but they did not let that show during their rehearsal. The sheer size of the Hollywood Bowl was an eye opener, but no performance at the Bowl is complete without the proper backing images. DJ Smells got the all star entrance spinning around on a rotating stage, backed by images from MFBTY’s “Wondaland” and “Angel.” If you didn’t know who the members were before, you were going to find out from the giant screens.

It was soon off to Club Feria, thanks to an invite from the club owners. What was originally supposed to be a quick hello and chill, turned into a night of reunions and an impromptu concert for club goers. The same night, old Movement member, Microdot (from then DOK2 + MICRODOT group, AllBlack), was scheduled to perform. Upon hearing of our family’s presence that night, Microdot made it a point to visit the family for a thorough reunion.


The fam jammed to Microdot’s set, very proud to see old fam doing well. However, the big highlight for MFBTY’s fans that night was when DJ R2 decided to take over the turntables, dropping “Monster,” and then convincing MFBTY to take the stage. R2 then played Bizzy’s “ALL I NEED,” giving Bizzy fans the American stage debut of the single.


DAY 3

Friday was enough to tire everyone out, and give them an opportunity to sleep so they’d be ready for the big day. Hollywood Bowl is a long day, for both fans and the artists. With a total of 21 acts, and a requirement for artists to appear on stage at the very end, that put our trio at the venue for nearly 7 hours. Coming and leaving proved difficult, but in California tradition, the team was able to have In-N-Out delivered to them for their dinner. When in Rome…

Despite getting rest, the team was still physically tired and anxious for the big show. They were the second to last act, the lead up into Shinee. They stopped for a few minutes prior to put on a positive face for us, even giving us this fun treat.

At 9:50PM, MFBTY went on, starting with “ANGEL.” Despite the huge line up of artists, there were a number of fans in the $300 pit waiting just for MFBTY. They gave the predominantly pop line-up a hip-hop twist when they dropped, “Sweet Dream,” then “BangDiggyBangBang,” and SURPRISE-“MONSTER.” Most KTMF performances are 3 songs long, but MFBTY somehow managed to squeeze a bonus song for concert goers.

 

 

They returned at the end of the show with all the other artists. Rather than simply sing the end song, they decided to make the fan experience even better: for a full 10 minutes, they dropped into the pit, signed autographs, and took pictures with fans.

Mirae came down to sign and say hi too! 😁😳 #KMF2016

After a long day, the fam went back to their hotel to rest. However, the next day, they reflected on how many fans came out specifically for them amongst a large line-up of artists. Despite given a short set, it was apparent that fans were more than content with finally being able to see one of their rare U.S. performances.

MFBTY thanks all fans who came out to this short set. The fam would love to come back for a full on concert of their own soon, and DT MFBTY INTL will be the first to let you know when they do.

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 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.

[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.

[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!

YoonMiRae “This Love” Teaser Says So Little, Yet So Much

YoonMiRae’s “This Love” single isn’t debuting until Monday, but her teaser released today gives us a look at what to expect. The piano intro takes us into the emotional world, and Lady T’s encapsulating eyes and classy outfits draw us in. Seriously, cue the Kleenex.

Three more days.

[vid] MFBTY Didn’t Just Drop an MV, They Gave Us a Studio Tour & Free Kareoke

If there is anything that we’ve learned about our boss, Tiger JK, he is extremely spontaneous. It’s something that has driven our staff crazy at times, but genius somehow comes out of it. So when MFBTY decided to drop the long awaited “6AM” MV live from their studio this morning, we were surprised yet glad they went out on this whim.

Fans anticipated they would just see the MV debut, but on top of getting the first glimpse of it, fans were treated to a tour of the studio. Their humble abode is filled with never ending shelves of rare LPs, a quaint recording studio, and random chatskis from their past music video shoots.

Extra bonus, check this old photo of them with DoubleK and a teenage Dok2.

After a brief casual sing and dance to Tiger JK’s “Reset,” Tiger JK saw Bizzy regress into quiet mode. Given the MV debut centered around Bizzy, JK encourages him to take the spotlight and sing “Love & Peace” on his own. See Bizzy fully wile out at 16:40 (finally!).
