We have received confirmation from Feel Ghood Music and UC Irvine Center for Korean Studies that MFBTY will be performing Monday, October 7th at UC Irvine. Tiger JK is also expected to partake in a panel discussing Korean hip-hop roots. The below is the preliminary announcement image, but we encourage people to join UCI Korea’s mailing list for immediate developing details.
Additional updates will be posted on this website and our social media feeds:
Fresh off her marriage to former manager, Lenny Nicholson, singer Ameriie headed straight for the studio upon her return to the US. In an exclusive with Billboard’sThe Juice, Ameriie leaked news of her collaborating with Korea’s “Jay-Z and Beyonce,” for her fifth album. “Cymatika Vol 1.”
I did a Korean version of “Outside Your Body” [her current single]with Drunken Tiger‘s (Korean/American hip-hop group) member, [Tiger] JK and his wife (Tasha Reid). Those are my collaborations. JK is like the Korean Jay-Z. She’s (Tasha) also a rapper.They’re both amazing. I’m doing a record or two for Tasha’s upcoming album. I haven’t done it yet, and she’s probably going to kill me because I’ve been running around doing so much.
Her new albumis scheduled for release in Summer 2012.
So after repeated requests from fans outside of Korea, I had to leak the episode. Unfortunately, I haven’t found anyone who could sub it. If a subbed version comes out, I will definitely post it!
NOTE: You will need the Veoh Player plugin for your browser or download the VeohPlayer on to your computer. YouTube has a 10 minute limit and right now no one has split the episode for view on YouTube. Vodpod videos no longer available.
Thanks to one of show’s producers, photos from the Welcome to the Jungle reality special were leaked via his twitter page. Looks like we’ll see clips from the music video shoot, their trip to NY, and JK tweeting from abroad (ha!).
The special will be aired on TVN, February 15th, at 10pm (Korea time).
The topic of #Sunzoo has been tweeted numerous times by DT Crew over the last 8 months, yet there’s been little information provided to the public.
Finally, after months of anticipation, the Sunzoo music project will be revealed on another TVN reality special featuring the entire Sunzoo team: Tiger JK, Tasha, DJ Jhig (yes, the original DT DJ is back!), Roscoe Umali, and Styliztik Jones.
So what’s been leaked about the project?
A music video was shot in New York City, with Rik Cordero, a music video director who’s shot videos with The Roots, Rick Ross, WuTang, Jay-Z, and well the list goes on.
The title song is called “Get Down” (thanks Wikipedia leak).
Looks like hip-hop producer !llMind took part of the production judging from his tweets (production credits include Eminem, LL Cool J, Kweli, and 50 Cent)
the project is geared to be “international friendly,” meaning English songs
About the Crew:
