CLAP FOR MFBTY + FEEL GHOOD EP RELEASING TOMORROW (6/27)

Leave it to the “Wondaland” artists to drop news of a new mini album unconventionally!

MFBTY members, Tiger JK and Bizzy, have become addicted to their Instagram lives as of late, dropping snippets of a Feel Ghood Music EP that’s coming out TOMORROW 6/27.

The mini album will include all Feel Ghood Music artists, including Drunken Tiger JK, Yoonmirae, Bizzy, Junoflo, and Ann One. 

The album will also feature actress/singer, Arden Cho, of Teen Wolf fame. Arden became friends with MFBTY in 2013. 

The supposed song title is “Clap Clap Clap,” with a catchy hook graced by FGM’s leading lady, Yoonmirae.

We’ve asked JK to repost his IG live previews, but he’s keeping the snippets ever elusive for those not watching his lives already! 

We recommend fans hit the follow button on IG and put boss on alert if they want to hear the album before anyone else!

6:06AM KST UPDATE: After TigerJK went live, more details have been released. The album will drop at 6PM KST. FGM has NOT finished recording it (LOL). Another song title, 토끼 (“MADHATTER),” was revealed. It is a collab between Arden Cho and MFBTY (Drunken Tiger JK, Yoonmirae, and Bizzy). Another song features MRSHLL (Marshall Bang), an artist that Feel Ghood Music was seen hanging out with at SXSW.

Tiger JK: “2017 Will Be The Last Year of Drunken Tiger”

While New Year’s Day often signals new beginnings, it was the day that Tiger JK announced the Drunken Tiger name will retire.

Feel Ghood Music has hinted of a new Drunken Tiger album, but it being the last was cemented yesterday when JK discussed his plans for 2017.

This announcement coincides with the 18th anniversary of Drunken Tiger’s first album “Year Of The Tiger.” Drunken Tiger, then a duo with former partner, DJ Shine, was one of the most controversial yet pivotal artist debuts. Drunken Tiger strived to represent hip-hop culture to the mainstream in a time when it was not accepted. It was expected of new artists to be “packaged,” with coordinated dancing, coordinated outfits, lip-synching, and acting conservative. Drunken Tiger hardly conformed to these conventions, and utilized their fame to speak on controversial issues, both political and cultural. It was no surprise that this behavior often resulted in banning from mainstream media, with only 3 of the album’s 13 songs deemed acceptable for public play.

Despite the obstacles, Drunken Tiger exposed the country to the underground hip-hop culture then mainly known in small circles of Seoul’s Hongdae Arts District. From this scene came artists like Dynamic Duo, Leessang, and Epik High.

It is widely believed that the Korean hip-hop scene would not be where it is today if it were not for Drunken Tiger’s achievements. Drunken Tiger was the first widely recognized hip-hop artist to win #1 on chart shows like Inki Gayo, with their 3rd album single, “Good Life.”

Feel Ghood Music made it clear only “Drunken Tiger” will be retired, and Tiger JK will still be active in other forms. Future plans are indefinite. However, the continuance of MFBTY is still a high possibility, as well as mentoring new Feel Ghood Music artist, Junoflo. UPDATE: Tiger JK still plans to promote music under his own name. 

One of JK’s more immediate projects involves his participation in a hip-hop competition show, now known as “High School Rapper.” JK had long refused to participate in similar programs, but felt this particular project was unique.

“I got a confirmation from the producers there would be no dissing on High School Rapper,” JK says. The dissing focal point of shows like Show Me The Money has been a contention for JK, as he felt there was more to hip-hop culture. Regarding how he will be involved in High School Rapper, “I will be working with the winning participants to produce their music.”

There is no estimated date on Drunken Tiger’s last album (update: The later half of 2017 was mentioned), but it will be a bitter sweet end of an era for all of the Korean hip-hop industry.

YOONMIRAE’s new single, “Hold on, Baby” confirmed for 09/13

Rumors of a new Yoonmirae single trickled down the grapevine last night, sending the music world into a whirlwind. All the sources gave us were the song would be “stylish pop.” FGM cryptically confirmed the rumors and simply wrote on their pages, “The Realest is coming.”

Come 24 hours later, fans were given the full answer. It’s the return of the Queen. Yoonmirae will be releasing her new single “Hold On Baby,” on September 13th.

 “Hold On Baby” was produced by Konrad Oldmoney, a veteran in the game who worked with Hip Hop legends such as Redman, EA Sports, Red Bull, and Nike.

Far East Movement, the Asian-American supergroup who shot to stardom with their single, “Like a G6,” also mixed down the track. The group happily agreed to help Yoonmirae and TigerJK due to their mutual respect for each other.

“We are very excited to release this track to you guys,” Feel Ghood Music said. “We hope you enjoy 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.

Fantastic Duo is a show where artists and the show applicant’s team up to be a ‘fantastic duo.’ As a massively successful rapper and singer herself, it will be interesting to see which track she will choose on the show.

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.
