Tiger JK Confirmed as Producer for Next Gen Hip-Hop Series

Shows like Show Me the Money and Unpretty Rapstar have brought the Korean hip-hop scene to the forefront of K-pop culture, providing a world stage for known and underground artists alike, including Feel Ghood Music’s newest artist, Junoflo.

While supportive of the participants on those shows, Tiger JK has chosen to partake in a hip-hop show with a social good twist. The untitled program, hosted by MC MinJi and HaHa, will give a stage to high school students wanting to enter the hip-hop world.

Tiger JK had this to say about the project:

“It doesn’t matter if you are short, tall, have scars on your body, have weight issues, or what not. If you are able to articulate your thoughts and speak your mind in your own way, that’s hip-hop. With healthy thoughts and battles, these kids’ voices will be the voice of the world. What’s scarier than a bullet? A MC’s philosophy.”

The show will debut February 2017.

Feel Ghood Music Tribute Song Says “Thank You, A Tribe Called Quest”

On the dawn of long awaited (and sadly, last) album of hip-hop pioneers, A Tribe Called Quest, all artists from Feel Ghood Music decided to remake ATCQ’s, “Check The Rhime” as a thank you for inspiring the entire FGM team.

Upon hearing the ATCQ album announcement, Tiger JK and Yoonmirae posted the above video of themselves jamming to the original song. What was not expected was the idea that fans would plant within them:

And with that, fan dreams became real, a reminder that our celeb biases do read their comments thread (Proceed with caution!).

The track includes every member of Feel Ghood Music and its counterpart, Ghood Life Crew. If you’re not up to date, that includes Tiger JK, Yoonmirae, Bizzy, Junoflo, Ann One, Myundo, and Superbee.

The exclusive (FREE) track will be available on hiphopkr.com later today

The New Triple Threat Known as Yoonmirae, AnnOne, & Rocky Rivera

We got word a few months ago that power vocalist and regular Drunken Tiger feature artist, Ann One, would be releasing a track with our own Yoonmirae, and Rhapsodistas collective member, Rocky Rivera. With only a short audio preview released on Instagram, fans were left wondering what was the story behind this power collab. At 7PM PST yesterday, ISA Music Global (a division of ISAtv), gave us the answer.

The song titled “Watch Yo Mouth” features AnnOne’s signature hypnotic vocals and the power verses of Yoonmirae and Rocky Rivera. Producers DJ Phatrick and Kiwi Illafonte add the intricate sounds that make this a center track for 18MillionRising‘s compilation album, which encourages Asian-Americans to get up and vote. The compilation features a number of heavy APA musical influences, and will be released at a later date.

A bigger bonus? The track can be DOWNLOADED for FREE.

Free dope music from 3 power artists? We’ll take it.

 

Tiger JK & Feel Ghood Music Welcome New Artist: Junoflo

Earlier today, Feel Ghood Music put out a teaser announcement about a new artist signing with the label. After weeks of Feel Ghood Music fam becoming close with rappers SuperBee and MyunDo, fans immediately thought the obvious new artists would be the duo. However, FGM proved they could fool even the smartest of fans.

There was no press conference, and only a very quiet build up to the moment. Leave it to boss, Tiger JK, to announce it in a less formal, but just powerful way via Instagram.

JK’s message reads, “Feel Ghood Music welcomes Junoflo to the family! Support our musical journey together. Let it be known @Junoflo! It’s official!”

To learn more about Junoflo, follow him on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat (@junoflo). HipHopKR also did a great interview with him last month.

Welcome to the family, Junoflo.

YoonMiRae & Tiger JK Relive Their Wedding Day in Elle Bride

In the March issue of Elle Bride Korea, 13 couples, including Yoon MiRae and Tiger JK, shared their romantic love stories as well as did a photoshoot just in time for the 130th anniversary of Tiffany Jewelry’s Setting Ring.

Tiger JK was seen wearing a clean, crisp white shirt, with Yoon Mi Rae donning long braids covered by a wedding veil. They both wore gold watches and matching jewelry to display their hip-hop royalty status.

When asked about why they did not hold a formal wedding ceremony (they did a small, laid back one with friends and family), they answered, “Rather than throwing a lavish event mainly focused on pleasing other people’s eyes, we put importance in living with laughter, with each other.”Their interpretation showed the true meaning of marriage.

Although they’ve been married for more than 9 years (together for 13!), Tiger JK & YoonMiRae act just like newlyweds – sharing the happy, sad, and tough times with each other and growing with one another.

Other couples such as Sean & Jung Hye Young, and Steve J & Yoni P, will be featured in the March issue of Elle Bride to celebrate the 130th anniversary of the Tiffany Setting Ring.

“WE KID” Contestant Makes Yoon MiRae Cry; Other Disses Tiger JK

wekid_2

Child reality shows are seen as a risk for TV networks, but throw in a power couple like YoonMiRae and Tiger JK and worry be gone!

MNET’s “We Kid (aka We Sing Like a Kid)” hopes to find the next child star by challenging them to perform new children songs written by famous mentors. The lead coaches include Tiger JK, actress, Park Bo Young, and actor, Yoo Yun Suk. 

Each coach also has their own team of co-mentors and producers, and naturally Tiger JK’s include wife, YoonMiRae, and partner, Bizzy. 

During the premiere episode, Yoon MiRae is brought to tears by a young contestant, Oh Yeon Joon. Although Yoon is considered the level headed member of MFBTY, Oh’s rendition of Pocahontas’ “Colors of the Wind” was enough to make her cry over a children’s song. Oh was naturally chosen, and chose Park Bo Young as his mentor.

However, Oh wasn’t the biggest shock to Tiger and Yoon MiRae. Six-year-old, Lee Ha Rang created his own unique version of Zico and Mino’s, “Okey Dokey.”

The energized performance had the judges and audience alike on their feet and dancing. When asked about why he chose to rap, Lee Ha Rang responded, “Rap is an expression of the mind. That’s what I like about it.”

Most assumed that Lee would choose Tiger JK as his mentor, but every jaw fell to the floor when he chose Yoo Yun Suk. When asked why he chose Yoo over Tiger JK, Lee replied, “I just think his team is better. I was going to choose Tiger JK, but I changed my mind. Sorry!”

Tiger JK jokingly stated that Lee’s choice bruised his ego enough that he’s not willing to do another album.

Don’t worry, J. We still love you.
